Jessica Green urged all to attend the fall MSBA meeting Nov. 9.

Jacob Dawson attended the meeting regarding an Eagle Scout project he was proposing for work on the outdoor classroom. He would like to redo some of the benches and picnic tables, redo the podiums, weed wack around the benches redo the sign, making some maps and redo the rail for the bridge. Scout leader, John Dawson, said this was a big project and he estimated that a rough cost of lumber would be around $1,000. He asked the board to consider what part or parts of the project they would be willing to have done. Schieber said that they might consider work on the front path only as the far path had an abundance of poison ivy and wasn’t used much. The board agreed to discuss the project and get back with them.

Under new business, Ford said he sent the board some information concerning the evaluation of the facility safety security as well as violence prevention.
