1.0 The Middle School Dance Committee chair was able to update us on the 3 dances that the PTO will be putting on. The first dance will be the Halloween dance on October 26th. The second dance will be at the end of Dr. Seuss/B.A.R.F. week on March . The last dance will me May 17th. She also noted that the 8th graders will be fundraising for their 8th grade trip by putting on a Daddy Daughter dance and a Mom’s night out.
2.0 We discussed the Fall Festival and noted that there are many conflicts in the Fall season. We are competing with other Fall school activities and with High School Football. It was suggested to move this event to the Spring. We decided to table this discussion.
3.0 It was noted that we do not have a total for the amount earned with the book fair. The Sucker Pull was very successful and will be brought back for the next book fair. We discussed the possibility of doing the sucker pull more often. The 100% box was not as successful this time. It was brought up that maybe we should look for an alternate location for the next book fair
4.0 The Dinner and Snacks for the teachers at Parent Teacher Conferences received positive feedback. We plan on serving breakfast at the spring Parent Teacher Conferences. We will be allowing teachers to order their meal using a “Room Service” door tag.
5.0 It was brought up that we need to start providing parents with an adequate notice for event and meetings. Jeff will look into having Emily send out an email.
6.0 Muffins with Misses will be help on October 11th. It was decided that Jeff would place an order for the muffins through Night Time and the milk through the cafeteria staff. Amanda will print a distribute flyers for teachers to hand out.
7.0 Halloween class parties will be held from 1-2pm for K-5th grade students on Halloween. The school will follow with a parade at 2pm. Class parties will be held within individual class rooms.
