JUNE AGENDA

May 8th PTA MEETING - DECISIONS

  • At the General Membership meeting a number of decisions were made. First, the Executive Board was elected for 2014-15 (see below).
  • Second, the members approved to move forward with raising funds for new playground structures. One of those structures will be a "Buddy Bench". This will be a bench designated to be used by kids who are feeling lonely and want a friend to play with. This idea was brought to the PTA by Mrs. Pawlitscheck's 3rd grade class after reading a story in their Weekly Reader.
  • In addition, it was decided to replace the structure on the lower playground.
  • Third, the members approved to have the Orange Ruler organize our fun run in the fall. This is a locally-owned company that has had success in getting schools excited about reaching personal and community goals. Check out their website at http://orangeruler.com.
  • The membership elected the following people to the Executive Board for the 2014-15 school year. We are currently in need of a Treasurer. Please contact a current board member (for contact info click here) if you know of someone you think would be good in that position.
    Co-Presidents: Lori Bartosh & Dawn Mercer
    Co-VP for Volunteers: Lorna Martins & Aimee Langabeer
    Co-VP for Fundraising: Yvette Charbeneau & Rochelle Long
    Secretary: Jillyn Reid
