June 6th 2017 PTO Meeting Minutes

  • Motion to approve meeting minutes made by Alisa Cox and seconded Orianna Barnett. Motion passes with no objections.

    Thank you to Julie Koehn for her work as President. Good luck at Clague next year.

    Fundraising: We can use the Get Moving Crew website/email communications for a flat $500.00 per year fee and run the event with the help of Mr. Fisher (sound system) and parent volunteers. Kelly will check if “year” is calendar year or school year.

    Back to school night with Pizza and Sno-cones was suggested. Amy will investigate a special deal offered by Cottage Inn and Kelly will look at Little Caesars.

    Thurston has had several successful movie nights. We could have even more (maybe 3) next year.

    We will have pizza kits, scrip cards, and store fundraising next year. We plan to continue Pizza Nights, but are negotiating how the deal will work.

    We will get access to a PTO google drive

    During Curriculum Night 9/12, committee members should be present to talk about their groups.

    Fall Festival is thinking about opening food at 5:00 and events at 6:00 next year. They will most likely use Little Caesars again.

    There was discussion about having each classroom make a basket for auction

    PTO elections will be on-line only in the future.

    Motion to move $200.00 from special area grants for Field Day made by Brandy Merritt, seconded by Allison Jeter. Motion passes with no objections.

    Motion to move $1046.00 from Special Area Grants for new microphones made by Teresa Hatcher, seconded by Amy Sonntag. Motion passes with no objections
