Stephanie said they did that in the elementary and went back to always doing Scholastic. We have 1160 students. Patty will get the volunteers. Get info to Terry Price and it will get put on the OHMS Happenings.
PTA table at Parent Teacher conferences – hasn’t been very successful in the past. Maybe we will just send out the info in the OHMS Happenings with screen shots.

Oct 22nd – vision screening (need volunteers) 8-11:30am
Oct 24th – Reality Town

We discussed the school grade. OHMS has a B. Grading only takes into account the testing and does not consider progress made.

Meeting adjourned.
