PTA Meeting April 19, 2017

In Attendance: Andrea Kirschman, Tricia Taylor, Julie Petersen, Megan Wright, Laura Wangsgard

Teacher Appreciation: Moved to May 1-5 to coincide with national dates and fun things Maridee has planned. Also, we changed the theme because Stone Mountain’s dates are later than ours this year and their designs have been slower than we were comfortable with. We are going with a Wizard of Oz theme. Committees and needs finalized, printing needs to be finalized and submitted ASAP. Tricia will take care of the printing plan and get it submitted because she feels SUPER GUILTY she will be at Disneyland the week of TA! We will need parent volunteers to cover classrooms, which will be handled by email and Facebook. We discussed and agreed on having kids bring gifts on certain days this year, so a flier with that info will go out about a week before the TA dates. Thanks to everyone who volunteered for committees!

Fundraiser Wrap Up: We made about $14,000, though since this is a 50/50 fundraiser, we only pocket about $7000, which will be split with the school. Still a fabulous take! Andrea does not think she will do the chocolate fundraiser next year. Her plan is to try to do small things all year, and negate the need for something big. Maridee is meeting with the coordinator of fun runs today to look into that option. A read-a-thon is something everyone likes, and Andrea has looked into the details. We will discuss this further at future meetings.

Yearbooks: Sayla submitted the design. Order forms went home last week and the option to order online has been advertised. We will need to arrange to sell them before and after school the last 2 weeks before school gets out. Sayla has also already ordered pens to sell.

Field Day: Ms. Ogden has made all the plans. The PTA will need to handle popsicles and ribbons. The date for 1-6 is May 25th. Kindergarten will have a separate date.

Open Forum: Archery? Is that still an option? Tricia will follow up with Sharon Dove to see. Fall Festival is already in the works for next year. Laura Wangsgard will head the committee. Tricia will touch base with Mariah and Maridee to ok a date. (Follow up: They said either Sept 11th or 18th)
