Approval of October minutes
Listening and Learning with the Superintendent
We’re on schedule for Dec 5 from 6 to 8 at school 44. A revised flyer has been sent to the principals of the schools in the 19th ward. We will supply the refreshments and school 44 will provide activities for children.
19th Ward Convention
We will have a table to show information on the Listening and Learning, Spelling Bee, status of school 16 and volunteer signup.
School 16 status
The BAC (Building Advisory Committee) includes the architects and engineers along with school administrators and teachers and community representatives. Attached is a summary of the current status.
The newspaper reported that school 1 will close for renovation, and that the students/staff would move to Wilson Foundation Academy. This would eliminate any presence of a middle school on the west side which is a concern.
Wednesday, December 14th at 7 pm in the 19th ward association office.
