November 9, 2016
There were 8 people in attendance, six parents and 2 staff members.
Now is the time to start thinking about the auction, scheduled for March 4th. The board has already collected a few donation items. A few of these items are: Museum of Flight tickets, Gift Certificates for Oaksridge Golf Course, Enchanted Forest tickets, and an American Girl. There were a few items donated by vendors at the bazaar.
The bazaar was full and made a total of $931 in profit. This includes the raffle, table fees, and food.
Barb is still looking at a sign for our school. She is looking at ways to get sign sponsorship.
Barb held her Title I/ LAP program parent night at this meeting.
The Kinder Garden is moving forward. Jared Erwin is starting the process to get approval for BSA to have the Kinder Garden his Eagle Scout Project.
The Book Fair was more successful this year than years past. Having the book fair open after the assembly as well as during the bazaar made a huge difference. Thank you to Kelly for all the time she spends on making this a successful event. The CP Library will be getting $600 cash as well as $1,000 Scholastic Bucks.
The group talked about Robo Calls from the school. The parents in attendance like the calls and want them to continue.
Barb talked about having a Cougar’s Den and Reading Nooks in the Library for students to go to as an alternative to outside recess on rainy days.
There was talk about recruiting more parents and having Room Reps (parents) for PTO. The Room Reps would help recruit more volunteers.
PTO will reimburse up to $200 for Reward Bingo prizes.
One parent would love to see an agenda created for the meetings as well as see the bylaws.
