Welcome: Mike Waters

Review of Meeting Minutes from last meeting:

In Attendance:  Mike Waters, Karlinda Smith, Lenn Ward, Ariana Sears, Karen Roylance, Jenny Olsen, Patty Camp, and Amy Morgan.

Lenn asked about vote for Laker Leap money‐ Mike responded that he would check the exact # (5 parents and 2 teachers, still waiting for Sharee Aldridge to respond), but everyone who responded was “affirmative” that they wanted to support the money that we would spend to support this program.

None were opposed. The motion to spend the money for Laker Leap passed.
