The new site-based decision-making council for Abraham Lincoln Elementary began its work at the June meeting in the school’s Gearon Conference Center. Members of the 2009-11 council are teachers Jackie Harley, Missy Flanders and Karlotta Cecil; parents Trudy Gardner and Farrah Pruitt; and principal and chairwoman Amber Thurman.
Plans were made to introduce the new council to school families at both the Parent Orientation Night July 28 and the Kindergarten Launch July 30.
The ALES Parent Orientation will be 5-6 p.m. July 28 for families with children in grades 1-2 and 6:30-7:30 p.m. for families with children in grades 3-5.
The orientation’s purpose is to introduce council members, explain new policies and procedures for the school year, meet teachers and allow parents to choose membership on various SBDM committees.
Kindergarten Launch Kindergarten Launch is 9 a.m.-noon July 30 for families and kindergarteners. Families will tour the school, meet staff and transportation officials and walk through a typical day including lunch.
