directory will be distributed with other papers to parents at the Parent-Teacher Conferences.
The directory is being distributed free of charge this year, with PTO funds.
Last minute Fall Festival events were discussed. Volunteers are needed to set up. Update on
prize redemption table, sorority volunteers, silent auction items donated and funds to pay
Whitts Bar B Que were all discussed.
Upcoming events include Stakz Night, which is September 25th and a Dinner and a Movie on
October 26th. Advertising ideas for a dinner and a movie were discussed as well as ideas for
thanking our sponsors.

advertising for Box Tops, such as using yard signs to let the community know that box tops are
accepted at TC Cherry.
Additional quotes will be received for stripping the basketball court. The company that had the
best bid has not returned our phone calls.
We reviewed preparation for Santa’s Workshop this year, how many volunteers, hours and a
