Penn Yan school board 4/25/12

    Meeting: The Penn Yan school board met for approximately 30 minutes on Wednesday, April 25.  
    Attendance: All board members were present.  Four members of the public were in the audience.   
    Action: The board approved to cast votes for Lynn Gay, Jeanne A. Durfee, and O.J. Sahler to fill the three board seats up for election on the Wayne-Finger Lakes Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES).  All three seats are for a term length of three years beginning July 1.  Each of the 25 school districts which Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES serves gets to cast a vote for each board position up for election.
    Discussion without action: Physical Education Department Chair Jonathan MacKerchar gave a presentation on the benefits of engaging in fitness and health classes.  MacKerchar explained taking part in physical education not only helps improve the health of individuals.  It can be beneficial when approaching any daily routine.  “Fitness does not just help with being fit and healthy,” he stated.  “It helps in all aspects of life.”  MacKerchar said being involved in such activities keeps the brain active which makes it easier to focus.  He pointed out several life skills which can be enhanced through involvement in health and physical education.  Those skills included stress management, communication, and decision making.  According to MacKerchar, the physical activities that one takes part in do not have to be strenuous.  He noted engaging in something like a 20 minute walk is an acceptable way to get exercise.  MacKerchar also showed a video promoting the importance of being physically active.
    Bids/purchases over $1,000: The board approved to cast a vote in favor of the tentative Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES administrative budget for 2012-13.  The proposed spending plan totals $2,876,313.
    Appointments/resignations: None.
    Upcoming meetings: The next meeting will be Wednesday, May 2.  A Meet the Candidates evening for upcoming school board election will take place on Wednesday, May 9.  Both meetings will be at 7 p.m.
