Movie Nights/ Babysitting

  • Courtney has requested the high school to babysit pre-school. Unlike the movie night, there will be several activity choices. Pizza will be offered.   The focus is on pre-school and is not intended for older children.  A request was made for the teachers of older students (Early K/1 and above to send out an e-mail establishing the grade level focus on pre-K for this activity.  This came under some degree of discussion.
  • The MS students perceive a conflict with their movie nights.  Gabe does not feel that there is a conflict of interest and that it could be beneficial for the MS as a step towards consistently.
