PTO May 3rd 2017 Meeting Minutes

10 05 2017
  • Election of officers – postponed due to lack of board members to approve.

o   Adrienne Mattson will likely stay as Treasurer

o   Beth Reith will stay  on as President

o   Rose Hatch has offered to fill a position – Beth recommended membership coordinator

o   Joe will continue doing box tops

  • We need more members if possible!! Suggestion to send another email to the PTO’s at other schools asking them to volunteer – attend next  session- hopefully they’ll agree to help out.
  • Budget expenditures – Beth confirmed our decision to support the final fling but we’d support the lighting and balloons – same amount roughly as last year but different expenses to ensure everyone at dance gets the benefit of the funds.  We received checks from textiles $17.75, Box Tops $164.80 and 1 new membership for $50!
  • Fund raising – tabled due to lack of participation – but we did discuss the need to have some big events early next fall to encourage families to get involved – ex.Screenagers film.   Mrs. Fay was unable to attend the Needham screening.  Mrs. Abati and Mr. Connors would like a few teachers to review before promoting.  We need to find out where it’s showing soon.
  • Teacher appreciation – May 19th.  Michelle Kelleher said she’d set up the Google drive for volunteers to sign up for food/coffee/supplies, set up and clean up.
