recorded by Pam Park

1. Rally Sunday went well. We have 12 Sunday School registrations, and several folks took forms to return to us on Sunday. We have at least one teacher assigned to each class. We will need backup/co-teachers for Emilee, Bailey and Bryce, but may be able to shuffle things around a bit to cover as needed after we look at the class sizes. Sara Wong will be joining as a teacher, requesting a class under third grade. The  classroom space assignment will not change from last year.
 PK - Janet and Garret- front classroom of Ohana Lani
