Principal’s report – Yeoman thanked everyone for a great year. The school raised approx. $3,200 for Pasta for Pennies. The bus driver that passed away, Joe McCune, had been nominated for the Sunflower Hero award and won. Joe’s wife donated the money from the award to WI. Yeoman stated the school would do something in Joe’s honor. The technology committee approved WI to purchase the iPad 2s. They will be purchased over the summer. WI is able to make this major purchase from the money raised during the fall fundraiser. WI will be the first school in the entire District to have iPad 2s. Everyone needs to think about what they would like to see the money from next year’s fall fundraiser’s to go towards. The carnival was great and the school was left in good condition. Teacher appreciation week was great!
