The end of the year is upon us. Please read this whole document. There is a lot of important dates and information. You should all know that here in the office we are busy preparing end of the year events and preparing for next year. Community members have busily been making the repairs to the Apse and I am happy to report it is in perfect shape now! Last week we welcomed in-coming kindergarteners for a visiting day and orientation. This is a unique year as all new Kindergarten students are either Canyon residents or siblings of current students. Current second and fifth graders also had the opportunity to visit their classroom for next year and get a preview of what to expect next year!
CATSS met last night and voted in a new board. It will be:
Maggie Harper (Delilah, Sam, Hank & Grant’s mom) & Cambria Shaw (Gus, Bowden & Clementine’s mom), Co-Presidents
Greg Stukuls, Treasurer (Ligaya & Gunnar’s dad)
Rodrigo Gonzalez, Secretary (Roka’s dad)
The Board will meet next Tuesday night to discuss the budget and LCAP. That night’s agenda is just hearing as the actual vote will occur on June 26th special meeting. The LCAP draft is attached to this email. Please let me know if there is anything you would like to add to the LCAP.
