Here are the notes from this weeks PTO meeting:
We had 4 teachers, 4 parents, and Ms. Waite-Larkin at the meeting this month.
We had a great discussion around next year - the PTO working more closely with the Staff on the one fundraiser/event that we have. Getting lots of school support in designing, promoting, and staffing the event in order to help get the community more excited about the event. We are definitely leaning towards a Harvest Fest/Carnival happening on a Sat in fall (tentatively Nov. 9).
We agreed to purchase a new dishwasher for the Staff room (the one there is not working and it would cost more to repair than to replace). Ms. Staly is going to research and purchase so that it meets the staff's needs. The PTO gave her a budget of $700.
Family Dance is this Friday. Wear your 80s outfits to school! Lots of cool games and dances. Fun neon/glow-in-the-dark items to purchase. Smencils for sale! Bring the whole family! (Please note - this is intended to be a entire-family event not a "drop-off" type of event. Unchaperoned students will not be allowed in. Thank you for understanding!)
Michawn McCutchen (our current PTO President) will be stepping down as president next school year. So if you're interested in shaping the PTO and how it supports the school - this the job for you! No experience necessary! The Treasurer and Volunteer Coordinator will be continuing, so there will be experienced board members to help you learn the ropes. Let us know if you or someone you know is interested in taking on this rewarding role - firstname.lastname@example.org
Kinder Round-Up will be May 7, 5:30pm-7:00pm.
Art Fair will be May 13, time TBD.
A side note - the school board announced the new Superintendent on Monday night. Here's the article introducing Mr. Leo:
