Paul Mihalko, former board of education member, addresses the Cassadaga board, asking them to look into the procedure for posting information about student non-eligibility list for extracurricular activities.
She gave details concerning some of the activities. The chicken dinners were sold out. The alumni recognition at the game went very smoothly, and the clean-up was finished.
While the boosters were not looking to make a profit, they did donate $500 to the midget football program and a pot of money is being held for things that sports coaches in the district will need.
Board members congratulated and thanked the group.
S. Carl Perry said, "We appreciate the effort you put into it. It was well-attended."
Jeanne Oag said, "I had a great time. We appreciate your efforts."
Board president David Christy said, "Everyone I spoke to enjoyed the event. You deserve congratulations for all the work."
William Carlson, who had asked many tough questions at the board meetings leading up to approval of the event said, "You did what you said you would do." He appreciated the amount of work that went into the event, although he did note that officials for the game told him they had problems spotting the ball.
Superintendent Scott Smith thanked the group for "support of our students."
An unscheduled visitor, Paul Mihalko, former board member, addressed the board about the ineligibility list (for extracurricular activities). He asked them to look at the procedure. His concern was that the grades were not posted accurately or timely.
The board expressed surprise but Johnson said she noticed the same thing. Neither parent was complaining about the policy. Both just wanted to be able to monitor the grades.
