VOTERS, EDUCATION COMMITTEE & CHURCH COUNCIL NOTES
The voters assembly of St. Paul’s has approved (by a vote of 33 to 3) the recommendation of the Education Committee & Church Council to call a part- time preschool teacher (Tuesdays & Thursdays only) starting with the 2013-2014 school year with the following alignment:
Mrs. Manke – Grades K – 1. Miss Bauer – Grades 2, 3, 4.
Mr. Nielsen: Grades 5-6. Principal Payne: Grades 7-8.
As the enrollment in various grades may fluctuate over the years in numbers, the faculty will have the flexibility, in consultation with the Education Committee and Church Council, to align itself accordingly. The Council requested a Call list from the District President at its Wednesday meeting and plans to extend a Call, God-willing, on December 19. In other news… The Education Committee & Council are hoping to increase the use of technology next year, especially in grades 7-8. The annual meeting of the voters will take place on Sunday, January 20, 2013 at 1:00 p.m.
