Afterschool Enrichment –

The PTA has put out an all call for a replacement for Debbie for starting in the spring quarter – to transition and take over for next school year.  Mea suggested that the replacement start transitioning and attending the Board meetings, setting up vendor contracts and other like activities to see if they are truly interested in the position.

Board Discussion about potential replacements for someone in charge of after school classes.

Fall Dance –

Our fall dance was a huge success!!  The dance made $500 beyond the budget. The bake sale was very successful. There were lots of opportunities for families to participate in different activities.

Bake Sale – there was some confusion about the tickets and how to ensure there is equity for all families. Some of the families tried to use tickets – next year one suggestion is to only use tickets.

In appropriate Behavior – some students were being aggressive and rowdy. In the gym there was not  enough supervision. Continued discussion about supervision of kids on campus after hours of school. An idea was to ask the Watch Dogs to volunteer and supervise.

Injuries – suggestion, PTA should have an injury report form so if anyone gets hurt during an event this can be properly documented.
