Present: Sarah (Landmark); Janice, Deborah, Sheena, Jessica M., Betsy, and Nathan (Laurie was unable to attend but offered input) Meeting set to discuss classroom details, what new rooms may be equipped with as far as storage and shelving and to have questions answered.  The teachers came away from the meeting feeling confident in the arrangement of the classes, keeping in mind that the design will not take into account personal preferences but meets the needs of primary students, whomever the teacher may be in the room.  Gathering input from stakeholders is a priority through the whole process.
