We went over the budget, discussing each item line by line.
Mrs. Stokes will be our liaison for the teachers and will come to the PTA meetings while an aide is sent to her class.
We decided not to do a Halloween activity as a PTA, to focus on helping the teachers with their individual class parties.
Book Fair will be Oct. 9, 10, 11 during Parent Teacher Conferences. Those days will all be short days.
Lynette Wilkins is chairing the Reflections committee.
We are currently doing a chocolate fundraiser with half of the money raised going to the school and the other half going to the PTA. Our goal is $3000 to be used for school supplies and field trips.
We discussed creating a list of what the school will need if/when the bond passes and passing that along to the district.
Carnival: different than last year. We liked not having to do as much work, variety of bounce houses. Next year maybe add face painting, pie in the face, dunk tank, raffle, and tables to sit. Made $316 this year vs. $3500 previous years. We did receive free bounce houses for field day from this company for using them for our carnival. In the future, maybe field combined with a color run for the students will be our main fundraiser.
We currently have $1200 in scholastic cash to spend. We will take the cash from the book fairs this year instead.
We want to emphasis spirt week and open t-shirts sales again. Some people couldn’t order them.
We will be doing Christmas store this year, but on our own. PTA parents are encouraged to donate items for students to purchase for their families.
Some students previous year yearbooks were missing pages. Lindsey will contact the company to discuss this as well as reconcile our account from previous year.
Discussed creating a phone tree for parents to help with indoor recess on stormy days so teachers can still get a lunch break.
