We discussed our booth at Open House. Using the I pads to allow people to sign up on the spot was great. 4 new parents showed up to this month's meeting. Sharing the PTO events with parents helped them understand all the events the PTO plans throughout the year.
Reviewed our budget and spending reports for August.
The upcoming Fun Run is going to be our biggest fundraiser for the year, so we discussed the various committees in place setup by Mr. Wood. To date the business sponsorship committee raised $1,380. Goal is 5k. A copy of the business sponsorship letter was being emailed out so we can all help earn business sponsors for the Fun Run.
Envelopes were being printed for students to take home and a 99 pledges website for the Fun Run would be created once we received the approval needed. That person is currently out of the country.
To help hype students up during the Fun Run Kick Off Assembly there is a plan to show a video of adults sliding through Jello if we hit goal to get them excited!
Discussed our upcoming Fall Movie Night. It was verified the school's movie license was paid and renewed so we were all set to show Captain Underpants.
All Parent volunteers needed to arrive by 4:30 to help pop popcorn ahead of time and organize candy and drinks. Everything sold would be $1.
Our 1st Family Night had been setup for Sept 25th at Firehouse Subs. Flyers were being prepared to be sent home with the students. We also planned to let parents know via Class Dojo, PTO website, and in the slideshow on the LLE school webpage.
Ideas for the Fall Festival were shared. We leaned that Kona Ice attending would allow the PTO to earn 20% of the proceeds as a kickback for allowing them to come.
Meeting Attendants - 17
