  1. Principal’s Report (2 mins) - Introduced new staff. Julie to include bio of new nurse in the next Jag. Changes in transfer process - if families assigned to Sunset Valley do not want a bilingual program they can apply directly to Joslin, no need to apply for a transfer. PTA brainstormed ideas on how to make this information visible to a broader audience. Creative Learning Initiative team will soon move to our campus and will likely be able to provide impromptu activities with our kids when time allows.

  1. President’s Report (5 mins) -
  1. Board Election 2018-2019 - Board should be made up mostly of parents, with one teacher liaison, and the principal. Current PTA needs to start thinking about nominations for the upcoming election. We will need a new treasurer. More to come.
