       check on this. Donna Bentley asked that a PD on our copier is needed for all teachers so

       About Learning, and recognizing students during morning assembly for As (grades) on
       chapter tests and other classroom activities from Kindergarten through 5th grade. Tom
       Crump recommended this be done. Meredith Hall made the motion to do so and Felicia
