Many teachers have not yet given names of class parent, but hope to have info by the 24th. Julie Dennis- Directory Stacey Koster has entered the volunteer and directory forms into the database. Julie passed around a “Volunteer Group Report” to show what the database can do. Julie is still waiting for non-payments. We have only sold approx. $1000 compared to last year. $2800. Please help sell – it is $35 for a business card size ad and Julie needs by the end of September. Lindsay Spirit wear is available online. Open house orders should be in this week. Had idea regarding “closet” for children who need coats, etc. Lindsay will speak with the guidance counselor and try to come up with some ideas. Liana Working on plantings around WHE sign on Brawley. Possibly could be planted on a district- wide Community Service Day, October 23rd. Boy scouts may help with planting, digging, etc. The daisy scouts expressed interest in planting a tree near the school entrance that could be decorated for various holidays. This would be their service project. Liana also passed out a sheet regarding budget cuts and therefore no bus driver bonuses. The PTO is being asked to provide bonuses or a bus driver luncheon. Jackie is going to speak to Mr. Todd about this and request a spreadsheet to give PTO understanding of funds coming into school account from community and how they are being allocated. Also, brought up Smart board conversation – Cristy was checking with the 5th grade teachers to find out what their needs are in each classroom. Should we get projectors until we purchase smartboards? Will discuss further. Annie The deadline for Entertainment books is this Friday, Sept. 17th. So far, we have collected approx. $1500 compared to $3300 last year. Sally Foster is coming up. Wanted to move to November, but Joan says we have a contract and the program must start in October. Next year we may look into selling a card instead of a book. Ann Zerkel and Julie Moon are heading up box tops, which should begin soon. Amy Francis Calhoun is heading up bingo night but needs a co-chair. Francis’ committee from last year should all be returning to help. Francis is concerned about it being in October and about where the money was spent that was raised last year. Joan said it went to computers for the computer lab. Francis wanted to buy bingo cards, but we may hold off for another year. Discussed having bingo night right before Halloween and doing a Halloween theme. Erin September 27th is Chick-fil-A night. Erin would like to get signs made for this. There will be three Chick-fil-A nights this year. Mr. Mills is handling McDonald’s night, October 5th 4-8pm. Jackie would like to get a spreadsheet from Mr. Todd regarding how much money is raised from McDonalds, pretzels, etc. and where it is being spent. Mr. Mills is also working on a carport to go over mega unit entrance. Jackie Brought up the issue of a capital needs program. This would be for parents who would like to give or would rather give directly to school instead of a fundraising company. There would be the potential to raise a lot of money for the school. The idea was passed. Jackie will compose letter and send it to board for approval.
