Website Update - Karin Normann

The website needs more content. (See email). How much are we paying for the website? The domain will be expiring in June. The school website will be switching the platform as it is too old and we may be able to be linked to the School website. Ray is working in Waterloo and may not have the time to continue looking after the alumni website. We sent 140 newsletters by email. By regular mail we sent approx. 800.

Principal's Report - Kenn Harvey

Joe Pomanti left a large donation to the school. This money will be used to computerize the French Room. Move the photocopy room from the storeroom to its own room.

The RCI website is transferring over and could give access to the Alumni. Unfortunately, RCI does not have a website design course.

School Council-PTA needs a community rep. Meetings are once a month to discuss daily school business.

Memorabilia - 7 or 8 cases of books left from the 100th Reunion. Need to give out at Commencement. Also remaining are 2 or 3 boxes of the gym floor from the old school. RCI was the Betty Anne Stephenson Award (two teachers, Nancy and Vicki were honoured).

Postage is higher as well as Bank charges are a nuisance. Need some ideas for revenue generation.
