Treasurer report - Our credit card has been stolen, so there have been some issues with that. Otherwise, there hasn’t been much for the month of April.
Mrs. Defever and Mrs. Krebs - The teacher say PTO is totally awesome!! Thank you for making everyone feel special! Fourth grade has sent in forms for field trips. Fourth grade will be seeing the little red school house out at School Section Lake. Third grade will be going to Cran Hill soon as well. We will not be allowed to bring pizza. It will be weather dependent. Mrs. Krebs would like class shirts for her class when they go to field trips etc. 25 Lime Green shirts all adult small size. Mrs. Bender has a field trip request form to submit for 1st grade. May 31, Tuesday, they want one bus. We will cover the cost for admission and buses. 1st grade also wants to go to the Roller Rink on June 1 at $3 a student. They also want to walk the kids to Hemlock at some point, and are asking for $1 per student to get the kids ice cream at State Street Scoops. Mrs. Zocco has a request for a colorful carpet, we have Scholastic dollars that we can use to pay for that for her.
Ms. Kent - Academic report/title - Today we finished third grade Mstep and K-2 literacy testing. We are trying to provide the best testing environment for our kids. Math night was awesome! We will do that event again next year. Family picnic will be May 20, it is an early release day as well. Weather permitting, it will be 12-1. The handout will go out in the next couple days. If there is bad weather, we will stay in the classrooms. K-1 spring concert is May 10. K will go to Spectrum Health to celebrate Nurses week. The BOGO book fair is on May . Health and Fitness on May 27/ Mr. Shewan assembly same day in the morning. Title - we have Mrs. Hearth and Mrs. Nagelbush full-time for reading and math. We collect data, and are on our last round of data now. Some will come in to review the data to decide if our program is working. We have a great Title team and they are working hard! They work with students that are behind or ahead. The goal is to have everyone at grade level.
Teacher Appreciation - We’ve had some kinks….but it’s going okay!! Subway lunch for Thursday. Amber will pick up giftcards. Party at Emily's house on Friday after school.
Box Tops - Deater - We got a check for almost $800! We haven’t collected any from May yet. Is anyone getting close to the goals? Maat is the closest at 65%. Our lowest at Cole at 20%. Most classes are in the 20s. Maybe put the numbers on Facebook to hopefully spur on some more box tops coming in. Check in with the teachers May 20, before the next PTO meeting to see who has reached their goals and decide party days on a case by case basis.
Labels - Becky -
Playground - Mandy - Equipment will go in this weekend. Becky’s husband is in charge of the construction end of it. There will be 4 individual, spinning, bouncy chairs.

BOGO Book Fair-This is a full blown book fair night. Everything is BOGO of equal or lesser value. One night only!! From 5:30-7:30 May 18. We cannot use scholastic dollars at this book fair. If we hit $2200, they will give us a 10% bonus on our last two book fairs, which should make us around $1000. We will be serving ice cream, Heather is in charge of ice cream. We have tables reserved, let them know that we would like a custodian here as well.
