Welcome to our new 2020/2021 PTO executive Board! Congratulations and thank you for stepping up! Next steps in transitioning include setting up a meeting to discuss next year?s budget, fundraising activities and events. We will make adjustments for what we know and can anticipate.
Next Wednesday at 11:00am will be the next zoom meeting for current and incoming exec board. Aaron to set that up, Julie to email all the link.
Julie reached out to possible t-shirt ad sponsors, specifically those from last year that may return:
Chapparal Veterinary has agreed to return as of this morning!
We anticipate fewer sponsors but it?s worth trying. We have Gear Beast already, thanks to the Theodore Family and Chapparal VMC
Julie will send letter and invoice to new board members so they can start soliciting for ad sponsors per Allison Summer’s request.
The next General PTO meeting will be May 13 and it is currently scheduled for 9:15am. We will review the budget for next year and vote up or down on its approval.
Winne Sarabia introduced idea to have teacher representation at meetings. Aaron supported and said he would meet with his leadership committee and discuss. Also discussed future meetings being in the zoom format so more parents/teachers can attend. Leighanne Harrison agreed, recommended the teacher liaison role have meetings with teachers to help with their input.
Aaron thanked the new board members for stepping up, particularly right now with our future so uncertain. Speaks to their character!
Thank you all for coming everyone and enjoy the rest of your day!
