Principal’s Report – Laura Annan Glascoe/Kenwyn Schaffner

  • Ms. Schaffner is still receiving positive feedback from parents and students about the school play.  Thank you to all of the parents and staff involved in producing the play and thanks to the PTA for helping to fund the production.  The new sound system was a big improvement.
  • The schedule for the SOLs will soon be sent out in the e-newsletter.

Internal Relations – Peggy Richardson

  • Ms. Richardson and Audrey Lesesne met with James Lander (Jamestown’s School Board Liaison) about installing internal door locks on classrooms that do not have them.  Mr. Lander indicated that there are other schools that do not have internal door locks on the classroom doors and APS believes that the current locks are adequate.
