    VI.            Calendar – A draft calendar for next year’s activities was distributed for review.  Discussion was held regarding how to integrate Bishop’s Peak into Teach events in an effort to improve fundraising activities as well as improve relationships between the two schools.  Next year’s major fundraiser was also discussed as a possibility for a Fall event, at Green Gate Acres.  Erin Clausen is the primary contact for this venue, as she is the one that has discussed the possibility of such an event with them.  The event could only be held on a Sunday, but the goal is to keep it a family-focused event, in order to avoid parents needing to find childcare during the event.  Old Edna was also brought up as a possible location for this type of event.

  VII.            Class Rep updates – None were given due to time constraints and a lack of available reps.
