Principal and/or Athletic Director Report
Coach Jones reported from Varacchi that helmets and shoulder pads for Football needed to be replaced.
She has gotten a quote from Rydell for approx. $5,100. Per Brian, since it is a requirement for Football
that so many helmets have to be replaced each year, it was decided to help the Fike Athletics and the
Boosters will split the cost and pay 1⁄2. Sheryl wrote check out that night for $2,550.

  • New Officers for 2017/2018 school year - Brian announced that we have confirmed a new treasurer for next year (Lori Herring) and the Secretary (Tanji Bass) will be remaining on. As far as a President/Vice President, Brian said he cannot get anyone to commit to the position and he and Wayne would remain in the current positions for next year but that he will have to be training someone for President for the 2018/2019 school year because the President can only be in that role for 2 years.
    • Coach Jones recommended that since there will be a new principal for next year and Coach Varacchi wasn't able to be at the meeting to just table the positions until we are able to meet with everyone once the new principal comes in.

Coach/Team Requests

  • Coach Jones - mentioned he was looking into Rings for two students who had won the State Champion title for golf. His quote that he had gotten was approx. $400. Brian advised Coach Jones to submit the request.
