JH/HS Principal - Lisa Munson
Discussion: 

Band concert was great last week.  Since our last meeting baseball ended their season during district play and softball continued on to regionals where they saw their season end.  We are probably all wearing our stretchy pants this week due to the amount of food we had during teacher appreciation week and at the FFA and All-Sports banquets.  Prom and After-Prom were Saturday and all went well...just had a few zombies today.  The one-act play advanced to state competition.  Tomorrow, we will know if we had students make the all-star cast.  They actually placed second in the region, just one point behind Alva High School.

There are 285 single teacher programs in the state of Oklahoma and Okarche finished in the top 10 in sweepstakes this year. The sweepstakes is the equivalent of a gold ball, etc. Mr. Dean has done some research and not found any documentation of Okarche having done so well at the state competition.  Coming up we have the HS/JH awards assembly on Friday beginning at 9:30 followed by the 8th grade recognition luncheon.  Baccalaureate will be this Sunday at 5:00 in the HS Gym and graduation will be Friday the 21st at 7:00 in the gym as well.

Superintendent - Josh Sumrall
Discussion:  Wrapping up the school year.  When I go to other Supt meetings and see how others do it, I think we do a good job of sitting down and talking about it and makes us appreciate where we are.  Parental support on everything has been tremendous.  Best prom I've ever attended.  This summer we have small little projects.  
Financial Report
Discussion:  Financials are in good shape.  We look to meet our carryover goal of 5 million.  Rob A asked who comes up with the estimate of needs amounts for the year.  Mr. Sumrall answered that it is our Treasurer, and it is 90% of what we brought in the year before.
