The March minutes and the March financial records were reviewed and approved. We showed $600 in income from scrip and corporate incentives and expenses for book week, assemblies, garden insurance, and teacher accounts. The winter budget bump was approved and a motion was made to accept the proposed 2011-2012 budget with the addition of $100 for bus driver appreciation.
Michelle Wilson spoke to the effectiveness of the PTSO-funded reading tutor program. Sixteen students have met or are meeting before or after school with teachers and have shown remarkable growth. This will continue to be a line item of $6000 in the next budget.
Jenny Kling, Anne Wilson, and Jon Van Tuyl have agreed to perform the audit of the books in June
Michele Beyer is working on the May 20th Carnival and has asked each classroom to be responsible for one game/activity in addition to their class basket. She is definitely encouraging someone to PLEASE step forward to learn about this every-other-year event as she will no longer be a Sunset parent when it’s time for the next carnival.
Lynn Jacobs and Amy Hill are working on the Fun Run with apprentice, Christy Briggs taking notes for a future event when these ladies also more on to RRMS. This is also May 20th.
As of yet, there are no nominations for any of the board positions or most of the event chair positions. If you are interested in taking on one of these responsibilities or you would like to nominate someone, please contact Linnette Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kathy Ludwig wanted to thank a few especially hard-working volunteers: Jenny Kling for the beautiful display case, and Kari Perry, Cherie Holman, and Susan Newton for all of the efforts with the yearbook. All volunteers are invited to some treats in the main office next week. Kathy also thanked the PTSO for the funding for Trudy Ludwig to speak at two assemblies and one staff workshop.
Meeting was adjourned at 4:15 pm. And then Kathy discussed what the budget shortfall would look like at Sunset in 2011-2012. This information was shared in a list-serve email.
