June Minutes

June 2, 2010, 2010

3:15 call to order – Sunset Library

In attendance:  Linnette Jackson, Jenny Kling, Michele Beyer, Caroline Popma, Robyn Deeb, Connie Hopkins, Jenny Palmer, Laurie Hurley, Bobbi Kelly, Maraya Radcliffe, Abbie Wojcik, Anne Wilson, Brenna Burke, and Kathy Ludwig.

The April minutes and financial report were reviewed and approved (as there was no May meeting due to the auction).  Finances showed a $20,000 profit from the auction, including the paddle raise for the artist in residence.  There were a few accounts with money left – garden stipend, music, gifts to school, and student support.  After budgeted expenses, there should be $15,000 carry-over for next year.

The 2010-2011 school year PTSO officers were elected.  Linnette Jackson as president, Laurie Hurley as VP, Robyn Deeb as treasurer, and Caroline Popma as secretary.

Jenny Kling reported that “Dine Out for Sunset” at Coldstone earned $255 for Sunset.   Also Silpada sales by Susan Roethe garnered $500, and Workout for Sunset brought in $60.  Each of these will be repeated in the upcoming year – with adjustments to date and scope (Shopnight with several vendors rather than one – possibly in November with Kathy Connell as chair).

Jenny also suggested a fall fundraiser idea for Lunchskins (environmentally friendly Ziplock bags) and for recycling goods (Terracycle brigades).  Kathy Ludwig commented that these might be good ideas for 5th grade leadership.

Abbie Wojcik reported on some fall fundraising options.  It was agreed to stick with the plan of giving the write-a-check option and gift wrap.  It is possible we will include bulbs – depending on what Sally Foster’s fall catalogue looks like…

Kathy Ludwig made a point of saying several important “thank you’s.”  She wanted to recognize Jenni Tan and Stephanie Warren for a wonderful Staff Appreciation Week, Theresa Parker and Heathyr Nance for an awesome auction, and Jenny Kling for Bus Driver Appreciation Day.  She also mentioned that the district was still in the process of how to handle another $2.4 M shortfall.

Linnette Jackson thanked her co-board members and presented them with gifts and took the lead on planning gifts for Dee Bassen’s retirement (after 25 years) to be presented on June 16th at the all-school assembly.

Meeting was adjourned at 4:15.
