  • Update on status of courtyard renovation projects
    • Jessica Montierth, Denice Chapman, and Terry Garza met with Jeff Sheppard from Play It Safe to review the considerations requested by the Board during the October Board meeting.  Jeff Sheppard is relaying the changes to his Office Manager and has scheduled another meeting with Presidio to review the revised proposal.  The meeting is scheduled for January 13, 2023.
  • Update on Building 300 restoration project

Principal’s Report:


  • Presidio Giving Tree
    • Presidio was able to help 11 families in need this holiday season.  Families received a $50 grocery gift card, turkey or ham, and gifts for their children.  Gifts included needs such as clothing and/or shoes and a want.
  • PTSO Holiday Bazaar
    • The Holiday Bazaar was not as successful as the PTSO had hoped due to inclement weather and outside events scheduled during the busy holiday season.
  • Facilities Update
    • Water bottle refilling stations
      • James with Prickly Pear Plumbing has yet to provide a quote for the water bottle refilling station installation as contracted COVID and was ill for most of Winter Break.  He hopes to get a quote to RL by the end of this week. 
    • Heater Switch Covers
      • The heater switch covers were ordered and installed over break.  Presidio is still missing one heater switch cover for 805.  It will be installed once it has been received.
    • Gym HVAC unit
      • The Gym HVAC is throwing codes, so a Work Order is being drafted and DC is reaching out to check on the status of the warranty.
    • Aftercare Grant to cover 1615 Rubber Surface costs
      • DC applied for an Aftercare grant in the amount of $125,000 to cover the costs associated with pouring rubber surfacing.  The grant is currently pending.
    • Trees
      • 1615 campus trees will be trimmed by DC and her husband
      • RL is getting bids for tree trimming on the 1695 campus
  • Winter Formal/SO’s Memorial
    • Both events are scheduled for the same day with overlapping times.  The High School CCCR class asked to include the 8th grade students in the Formal; however, JM denied that request.  JM also asked the CCCR class to look into options to change the date.  CCCR stated that they would lose their room deposit if they change the date/cancel.  Presidio offered to reimburse CCCR for any loss in deposit.
