We have two teachers (one at each elementary) who are going to pilot flexible seating in their classrooms. Thanks to REAP dollars, we will be able to purchase different tables, chairs, etc... I am excited to see students learn in these new spaces! New REAP money for the 2018-2019 school year is $37,697.
Our new website is almost up and running. Thanks to Ms. Bastian for her work with this. Mr. Marsh did a great job supporting, but also setting up our new credit card payment system.

An update on the Raymond Central Crisis and Safety Protocol was given. Deputy Piitz provided training with teachers on Tuesday in regards to the new I Love You Guys Framework.
