FIKE BOARD MEETING
2/9/17

Present: Lori Walston, Leanne Thomas, Felicia Rodgers, Mark Holley, Sherry Hodges, Lee Ann Madar, Michelle Harrell, Elizabeth Black, Todd Anderson, Windy Boswell

Treasurer's Report/Teacher Grants:
Current account balance is $19,667.82. We are still waiting for the Grant funds to come in.

Teacher Reimbursements:
The $50 Teacher Reimbursements will be offered to Certified Staff. A parent committee has been formed to work on the process. The members are Sherry, Sam and Windy. They are working on the guidelines, receipt acceptance rules, forms, etc. It was decided that receipts dated August 1, 2016, or after will be accepted for reimbursement. Once the committee finalizes the details, forms will be emailed and placed in teacher's boxes. A tentative deadline for teachers to turn in receipts is March 1.

Fundraising:
We will begin the shoe fundraiser "Funds2Orgs" once we receive the starter kit. We discussed coordinating this around the blood drive, as not to interfere, but some thought it would possibly be good to have it during the blood drive as convenience for those coming in to give blood who may also bring shoes. Sherry will provide warehouse space for storing the donations.

Teacher Appreciation:
Our next opportunity is Valentine's Day. We will provide treat boxes on Monday 2/13 or Tuesday 2/14. Please contact Felicia Rodgers at felandnev@aol.com if you are interested in donating or helping with this.

Academic Excellence Celebration:
This ceremony, which recognizes students who have a 4.0 or higher GPA at mid-semester, will be held April 28, 2017, from 9-11 a.m. Lee Ann is planning this event. She said that we will need to purchase a new box to house this year's plaques. She is still working on securing a guest speaker. The board agreed that each senior who has achieved this honor all four years will receive a Roo Cup and a $5 Chick-fil-A gift card. We discussed the Senior Highlights Information sheet and decided to limit their activity participation listings to 2.

News from Mr. Holley:
Fike will hold its freshman/sophomore Parent Night tonight (February 9). Topics will include college entrance and course registrations for next year.

Rising senior course registration for next year begins today. Rising juniors will complete theirs end of next week (week of 2/13). Parents, please assist your children with this.

First semester testing went well. EOC results showed gain over last year in Math 1; English & Biology stayed the same.

Fike is now the only IB high school in town. Students in the IB program will transfer to Fike.
The AP Capstone program will be implemented at all three high schools next year.

Next meeting: March 9 at noon. The meeting was adjourned.
