The budget and spending reports were reviewed for October.
- Fun Run -
Everyone learned we have another $245 that has come in that needs to get added to the current total of $16,938.98 in pledges raised at the Fun Run.
The fun run was discussed in detail. We were all amazed that with the 26% participation we were able to raise $16k+. Next year were hoping to begin working on business sponsorships over the summer and hold the fun run a little earlier so the fun run and fall festival aren't so close together. We discussed the plan to have parents sign for high end prizes such as a gift card, tablet, or more to make sure they are kept safe. Letters will be sent home notifying those parents.
The Fun Run closing assembly will be held Dec 1st. Once business sponsorships were factored in, it was decided we are close enough to our $20k goal that the Jello Fun Run Side is going to happen! Principal Johnson and many teachers will be participating as the kids watch!
- Fall Festival -
The food trucks were a hit at the Fall Festival. Shout out to Sam for arranging! The PTO earned a % of the proceeds from each so we're glad everyone seemed to enjoy them. LLE teachers did an amazing job creating new games and activities for the students/parents to enjoy. The kids loved the zombie nerf battle, cotton candy, slime, and fish of course!
We are considering getting rid of the jump houses next year. We have a few ideas, but if you have an idea of what you think we should place in the gym instead please leave a comment below.
- Santa Shop-
The PTO is currently working on getting items to sale in the Santa Shop.
The PTO will setup the Santa Shop on December 7th.
