Meeting Attendance:  Jen Stone, Kristen Miceli, Marilyn O'Donnell, Richard O'Donnell, Toni Cestari, Heather Deegan, Shannon Sargeant, Taran Gruber, Karen Purcaro-Tarsi, Michael Stopa

Principal's Report:  Art teacher has started.  Music teacher will begin as a sub Dec. 12th and be a trial period before a contract is offered.  Discussion in the administration meeting about food being brought into the school.  We will probably see more of a policy on this. The new grant funded reading program will start after the winter break.  A math pilot program have started for some class.  K-Kane, 1-Grazino, 2-Nieves, 3-Meier, 4-Yammine.  At the end of the year school will compare and find the best math program for the district.

Treasurer's Report:  Motion to approve Michael, second Toni.  All approved.  Shannon is now on as a signer to the account.  Jen Stone gave her two deposit slips one for school store and the other for teacher trot.  Also gave her cash to be deposited for the remaining Naugatuck Chairs ($100).  Next month we need to transfer over the central treasury
