Meeting Minutes – 12/1/2020

I.  Call to order

Ryan Hart called to order the regular meeting of the Andersen DEANs Foundation at 7:10pm in Ryan Hart’s backyard.

II.  Roll call

The following members were present:  Ryan Hart, Michael Dye, Nate Kuchera, Alex Murray, Mike Gartner, David Jubitz, Kevin Harbour and Jared Smith via Zoom

Special Guest: Andersen Elementary Principal Tiffany Lewis via Zoom

III.  Open Issues & New Business

    1. Andersen Elementary Principal Tiffany Lewis provided the DEANS an update on Andersen’s 1st COVID case. She discussed the process and procedures in place to keep kids and staff safe.  She also provided an update regarding a NMUSD district committee that she has been assigned to in order to research the possibility of longer school days for elementary schools in the district.  Lastly, she let us know that the iDeal teacher development seminars have been scheduled for January, February and March.
    2. Alex Murray discussed having Dr. Jerry Weichman provide seminars to the parents, staff and Andersen upper grades. Tiffany Lewis would like to continue the seminars if possible.  Alex Murray will reach out to Dr. Weichman to see his availability.
    3. The DEANS board discussed the possibility of fundraisers for the balance of the school year. COVID continues to make scheduling very challenging, but we are continuing to see if there is any way we can still hold our annual Dinner Dance and Golf Tournament.
    4. In regards to additional fundraising ideas, the DEANS board has discussed bringing back the class liaisons in order to help communicate between the DEANS and individual families more effectively. Everyone felt that it was a good idea and we will start looking for possible liaisons in each grade to partner with the DEANS.
    5. Mike Dye and Kevin Harbour discussed the idea of the DEANS purchasing logo’d masks for Andersen that we could sell as a fundraiser. The board felt that it was a good idea and voted 8-0 to approve.

Ryan Hart adjourned the meeting at 9:05pm.
