Shorts from the CSC, June 17

· Superintendent's Report. This is a busy time, Superintendent Davida Fox-Melanson told the Carlisle School committee (CSC) on June 17. The seventh grade and student council have been involved in a food drive for the Open Table. Nancy Garden the speaker for the Open Forum was highlighted on the cover of the School Library Journal. The eighth grade held an Ecology Fair to demonstrate their projects in ecology. The fourth grade visited Orchard House in Concord. There was a party for four retiring members of the faculty.

Fox-Melanson went on to say that the K-7 grades in Carlisle had a very successful Move-Up Day. The school is quite full and the total population is 854 students. The student numbers are gradually creeping up and next year the fourth grade will have 112 students. So far 80 children are registered in Kindergarten. She concluded that soon the Middle School would have to consider restructuring as the number of students increase. Space is always a problem and next year the Spanish Class does not have a classroom.

· School Committee changes day of meeting: The CSC has changed the regular meeting day from Tuesday to the first and third Wednesday of each month beginning in September.

The next meeting will be the annual retreat on August 3.
