October Meeting Minutes

October 15, 2009

6:30pm call to order – Sunset Library

In attendance: Maraya Radcliffe, Kari Perry, Theresa Parker, Brenna Burke, Caroline Popma, Linnette Jackson, Jenny Kling, Robyn Deeb, Kathy Ludwig, Tiina Lemetyirer, Laurie Hurley, Anne Wilson, Melinda Doblie, and Connie Hopkins.

September minutes were approved. The September financial report was also approved showing a temporary loss from Scrip, expenses for Curriculum Extension, administrative costs, and staff luncheon.  Income from PACE, Dine Out for Sunset, etc will appear next month.

Family Fun Night reported record numbers, (running out of 400 slices of pizza), a possible profit, and a need for more tables.  It was also discussed that we might be able to do with less candy.

Dine Out for Sunset earned $160 from Coldstone Creamery.  They would like to do more in the future with Sunset.  Maybe another Dine Out after an evening event/activity.

Teacher Luncheon—Kari Perry reported that all went well; plenty of volunteers and food, lots of appreciation.

Box Tops—end of the next redemption period is October 25th.  (Please bring in Box Tops for Education!)  Right now we have 250 points.

PACE- deadline was extended for the prize-earning period due to a typo.  77 families have signed on earning $770 for the school!  We discussed ways to make the program more environmentally friendly and that the intrastate use needs improvement.

Gift Wrap and Write-A-Check fundraiser deadline was extended to October 19.

Barn Blast—We need volunteers!!  Classroom reps were asked to go back to the classes and try to find parents who can work in 30 minute shifts on Friday, October 23rd.  No photo both this year, but hopefully Sunny can make an appearance.

Spiritwear – we have some samples and are trying to get an order put together, but could use a coordinator.

Kathy Ludwig spoke briefly, suggesting that she find a few 5th graders to take on the job on improving school spirit with dress-up days, etc.  She also thanked the PTSO for the 2 teacher luncheons (back to school and conferences), indicated that Janet Runyan volunteered to be the teacher rep for the PTSO, and gave a big “thank-you” to those who helped with the pre-school museum – a great success!  Kathy also gave an update on the math curriculum and the great support the teachers are getting (starting with 5th grade teachers) with implementation.

Meeting adjourned at 7:30 with the sale of old Halloween decorations (from storage).  Great deals!
