  1. Roundabout – Mr. Reese has received many calls about the new roundabout.  As North Park has no jurisdiction over it, the calls have been forwarded to the city council.  Since then a speed-bump has been installed on 2175 West in front of the school. It is unknown why the speed-bump was installed.  Just like the roundabout, North Park has no jurisdiction over the speed-bump.
  1. Family Literacy Night – Nancy Crocker, Reading Specialist

A terrific family night has been organized to take place on Tuesday, Nov. 10th from 5:30PM-7:00PM.  Dinner will be provided.  There will be several literacy based activities for all ages to participate in.  A free book will be sent home with each family.

The next family night will be held on Friday, Feb. 26th during Dr. Seuss week.

  1. School Marquee – Mr. Reese had found a bid of $30,000 initially.  He currently has found a couple of new bids for (color) $18,000 and (black and white) $9000.  It was the opinion of the council that the black and white display marquee would be sufficient.  It question is how to fund it?  It has been verified that the electric lines are already in place for a marquee.
