Checks outstanding for baskets, flower bouquets, SWEP (sustainability club), shouldn’t be any other expenses this year. Will start with that amount next year.
Raughley is working on the final budget for 20/21, will create the budget for 21/22.
We contributed $800 to 8th grade graduation.
We received a few small donations via PayPal for 8th grade graduation. Will forward that money to Hien.
Susie will talk with Hien about what our needs are for next year. Field trips to Wild Island, Shady Creek, Ropes Course?
Let’s make sure we ask parents to chip in on the permission slips as we have done in the past. Ask Hien to put that back on the permission slip.
Ask Hien if we can reschedule the overnight field trips that we missed. It would be great if 8th graders could have an overnight to bond them before heading off to high school.
Cougar Days is August 17th. Typically ACMS PTO sells school supplies but not sure what that would include. We will definitely plan to have spirit wear available for sale as well as available to order. Offer more popular items - beanies, sweatshirts, t-shirts. This will be the time to sell.
Waiting on the State to get guidelines for school. Probably still masks and barriers next year.
District survey: There will not be a cohort C next year.
Summer school will be held at ACMS this year in July.
Wrapping up the year, trying to honor 8th graders. Celebration on Wednesday, June 16th. 8th grade promotion will be the next day. Each student will receive four tickets, they will be sent home on Friday. You must have a ticket to attend, ask Hien if you need more. Promotion will also be available to view online. Masks must be worn. No hats. Kids must go to practice every day or they can’t participate.
8th grade award assembly on June 16th.
June 18th - 6th grade is doing a beach day. 7th grade will be doing something too.
Our school is growing, there will be around 600+ students next year. Bell schedule will be full day, 7:45 am - 2:15 pm. Bus service as usual. Should know more by July.
Right now, Hien is putting a hold on all field trips. Simply can’t commit to anything now.
8th grade gifts have arrived, PTO funded and can help put together.
Next Year’s Board
Who will be returning? Secretary, Treasurer, Co-Leader, all open positions. We need to recruit more help.
Since things have opened up and we’re not working and attending school from home as much, we need to find a better time for meetings. We need move so teachers and working parents can attend. Discussed having meetings somewhere at 6 pm, perhaps every other Thursday. We could also alternate having meetings in the morning and the evening, different each month. We have to see if the school will allow us to meet on site next school year.
Next meeting will be in July - will discuss Cougar Days and the budget.
Adjourn 9:35 am
The next PTO meeting is Thursday, February 9th, 2023 at 7:45 am in the ACMS Staff Room.
