Superintendent's Report
       Staff Professional Development Request
       Course receipt received from Sandra Moulton. This has been approved at a past meeting and will
       be paid.

Principal's Report
        General Information
        Summer camps were very successful. There were a lot of island and non-island children using the
school all summer long.

         Angela Hamlin has been hired as a Special Educator. We are currently looking for a Paraeducator
for a student who needs one-on-one assistance. There will      hopefully be a contract ready for
signature for that position next week.

        The school has been cleaned and will be ready for next week. The new custodian is working out
well. The new planters will be in next week and new trails will be cut through the back trees.

       There is a possibility of another technology grant which would connect our children to freshmen
at CVU for a common project involving Bhutan.

      The focus for the year will be "What it means to be green" and the Civil War. Getting the
community involved will be a priority.

         Isle La Motte was awarded a Montreal Bread Oven, which are made out of clay in Vermont and
are used for wood-fired bread and pizza. This is an        entreprenureal venture that the kids will be able
to use after the spring to make pizzas. There will be an afterschool club from which community members
can      order pizza. The man who is building the oven will be speaking at the open house.
