- Member Concerns/Comments:
Mrs. Mero asked why so many math books come home partially completed. Teachers explained that most pages they used were
torn out and that the others overlap other resources that they use so all of the pages are not needed but they want the parents
to have what is left so they can use the pages during the summer or other times if they like.
Grandparent day was a complete success. Thank you to the PTA for making it happen.
April 26 the school will hold a fundraiser. There will be food trucks and the teachers will each man a booth.
