MTS is now capped and projected numbers were discussed for the fall. MTS is priviledged to be able to keep class sizes well below the average with 20 students per class. These numbers will fluctuate but it is projected that we will be over capacity even with the cap and 6 portables approved.  Portables number 5 and 6 are expected to be ready for September, with the other 4 close to completion. The new CBE fee schedule was discussed. The link to the fees schedule is here.

The Parent Council discussed ideas for spending the remainder of the Playground budget and Fundrasing ideas for the Fall.  Meetings will continue on Mondays next year.

Our next meeting is May 28, 2012 at 6:30pm.
