Shorts from the CSC, May 2

· Strategic Planning. Carlisle School Superintendent Marie Doyle announced at the May 2 Carlisle School Committee (CSC) meeting that the Strategic Planning Committee has been formed and has 22 members, including eight parents and eight school staff. The committee has begun meeting and will work over the coming months, focusing on reviewing the school's vision and mission statements.

· Eco Fair presentation at CSC. Some eighth graders will attend the May 17 CSC meeting, Doyle said, along with science teacher Dr. Kathryn Marsh to present information on their Global Warming projects and demonstrate their Eco Fair displays. Committee Chair Nicole Burkel said the Eco Fair was excellent and wondered if it could be opened to the public. Committee member Wendell Sykes agreed, saying he was impressed by the technical knowledge the students portrayed as they explained their projects on global warming. The annual Eco Fair has been shared with the parents and school community. In addition, this year eighth-graders were also invited to participate in Step It Up, a town-wide event on climate change, held at Union Hall in April.

· Recognitions. Doyle noted the meeting as the last for committee member Christy Barbee and thanked her for her long service. Doyle read a long list of Barbee's projects and accomplishments, including the Wastewater Treatment Facility. Barbee was presented with a gift of plant.

Noting it was "Administrative Assistant Week," Burkel thanked Assistant to the Superintendent Claire Wilcox with a gift in recognition of her service.

Burkel also gave Carlisle School Business Manager Heidi Zimmerman a gift and thanked her for her hard work during the annual budget process. "You rose to the challenge of the new [budget] mailer," Burkel said.
