Alan Adler updated on visiting
artist Holly Piper. This is her second week and she knows many of the kids by
name and is doing a wonderful job. The kids are loving the art experience.
Statewide testing is almost
completed with 4th grade being done and 3rd & 5th
finishing up. The year the logistics of the testing are going better and the

The Territorial Preschool Daycare
plan has been accepted. It seemed that the school board was surprised by the
depth of the plan. After all the numbers were reviewed it appears the TPD had
only 1 bad year as is currently $1600.00 in the black for a 10 year overall
total. A parents meeting for fundraising for the TPD will be Saturday May 7th
at 8:00am. The school boards requirements were for the school to be revenue
neutral against the JCSD budget and that no money would go into or come from the
general fund. Most importantly the Territorial Preschool Daycare would now have
itís own line item on the budget.
Alan will be presenting the school improvement plan to the JCSD Board
May 25th. A draft of the plan is available for all to read outside
