President Abby Crock called the 7:00 meeting to order with eight people present. They were officers Jodie Casteel and Mary Pangle, teachers Janet Powers, Audrey Watson, Tiffany Speck, and Mindy Theobald, and one additional parent.
After recitation of the pledge, the minutes of the April meeting were read. Janet Powers made a motion to approve and Tiffany seconded. The minutes stand approved.
In the absence of treasurer Alicia Warren, there was no report.
The cost of required BCI checks was discussed. Two volunteers submitted requests for reimbursement and these will be given to Alicia to pay. Several teachers will need to do this again before fall because it has been five years since we were first required to have the BCI check. It could be cheaper for all if we purchased our own machine. Other school districts have done this. Tiffany will talk to Phil Theobald to see if he will find the cost of purchasing a scanner.
Photo albums were given to secretaries for their day. PTO agreed last month to help Mr. Phillips provide lunch for the entire staff for Teacher Appreciation . Abby made a motion to also give a $5 Subway gift card to all staff members. The motion passed.
Our mother-son event will be Muffins with Mom (or grandmother or other important adult). It will be open to P-K through 8th grade. It will be 7:30 A.M. to 8:15 A.M. on Tuesday, May 21. The menu will include school cereal, juice, and milk, coffee made by Audrey, and muffins. All present will make at least one dozen muffins. We’ll need to use plastic tablecloths to decorate a little. Jodie will make a flyer to send home to inform everyone.
The dance, won by Alysha Matson, that was a prize at the Spring Fling will be held May 24th from 7:00 to 9:00. Mr. Stiver’s class will have free admission, and all other students will pay $1.
Students who have perfect attendance for the entire year will be given a pair of Redskin sunglasses. Mary, with the help of Kathy Ramsey, will take care of this.
Jodie had the totals for box tops for April. Mrs. Schafer’s class won for the month. The cut off for submissions for May will be May 24th. A pizza lunch will be the prize for the class that wins for the year.
Because of the Fun Day planned by the Health Dept. on May 22, PTO will not plan to have the 5K Fitness Day that was previously discussed. Instead, we will try to plan something as a welcome back in the fall.
The next meeting will be Thursday, August 1, at 7:00.
Audrey Watson made a motion to adjourn and Janet Powers seconded it.
