January 18, 2012 Minutes
Meeting called to order by President, Sharle Wilmot at 3:15.
Absent was Secretary, Erin Beaty, minutes of the past meeting was passed around, discussed and approved. Copies of the treasurer report was passed out and discussed by treasurer, Danielle Wright; she expressed deep concern of working too close to the budget and not having a good cushion to start the next school year before there’s time to have fund raisers.
There was a discussion of receiving “bad checks” at a previous fund raiser. Decision was made to contact the person by phone then by letter to settle the check; also in the future to request/post “cash only” at one day only sales. (not Frankenmuth Funds)
There will be a cotton candy sale March 29th, with preparation being done the day before in an empty elementary classroom. (March 28th at 3:00) Sharle Wilmot will get the materials needed for the candy. Mrs. Weaver will correspond with Mrs. Gates to have the sale listed in the March newsletter.
Mrs. Weaver presented information for camera/projectors to be purchased by the school and if it was possible for P.T.O. to purchase two also; this would make it possible for each elementary class to have a set and those purchases would stay in the elementary school. Motion by Jan Vaughn was made to give Mrs. Weaver permission to order 2 camera/projectors and to turn the invoice in to P.T.O. for payment of $1,560.00 and not to exceed $3,000.00 supported by Tonya Addis and motion voted on and all approved.
The Science Alive in this year’s budget will not be scheduled until next year therefore the allotted money will be used to fulfill the budget this year.
The Band is sponsoring a Mom/Son Night so we will discuss another type of fund raiser, Karen Gostomski suggested other projects such as “Date Night” or “Prom Night for Adults” or “Red Neck Prom”, this will be considered in next year’s events/projects.
All event/fund raising projects for the coming year must be decided and applied for in May.
Bake sales during Mrs. Smith’s Music programs were discussed, motion by Karen Gostomski supported by Mrs. Weaver to give 25% of all proceeds to Mrs. Smith/Elementary music dept. Motion passed therefore $75. will be given to Mrs. Smith from the proceeds of the Christmas bake sale. The next bake sale will be during the elementary spring concert May 16th at 7:00. Information for this will be given to the Up-date and to the elementary monthly newsletter.
