- will need to be submitted in February
- Based on 417 students–count from October
- Easiest way to ensure proper numbers is to focus on re-enrollment in the spring
- HPC will prioritize personnel, especially those who support our school goal of writing
- Is it worth digging into how we got the rating and how to continue to get it? Is it a priority to continue getting it?
- PC will talk about the breakdown of scores at the PTA meeting in January
- Data is from last spring and teachers have already analyzed closely
- After MOY assessments in January, we will have a better idea of our growth this year
3) Moving Process
- Continuing to reiterate move-in date–Office staff will probably move out of office to make room for Eliot-Hine
- Figure out immediate storage at new building for boxes
- Will probably move everything at one time–packed by last day of school
- Not as many things to move because we aren’t taking furniture
- Can we get families to store things in basements and garages that would be irreplaceable if lost?
- Can we put a line in the PTA budget for a moving fund?
- Can put it in the new budget starting July 1
4) Renovation update from SIT
- Furniture was presented, most of it is standard by DCPS
- Presentation on finishes is coming soon
- Playground was presented with the color scheme, talking about an environmental picture on the playground (representing Anacostia?)
- Movable stage providing for different configurations
- Max Keiba is following up on shade on the playground
5) Brick Fundraiser
- Did not sell out of bricks
6) Name Change
- Katie from DCPS mentioned that John Walker Maury isn’t the school’s registered name
- Maury has already gone through a lot of changes–incorporated Lovejoy and possibly Gibbs
- Sean–based on conversations, don’t know if a survey will result in any unanimous decision
- Can we engage students in the conversation? Survey for homework?
- Some parents may create a survey or push for a decision independently, even if LSAT doesn’t move forward. How do we feel about that?
- LSAT will distribute a survey to the community. We will revise the original survey to eliminate the option to disassociate with John Walker Maury
- We will distribute online, paper copies and through homework from 2-5 grade
