Treasurer report - we have just over $17000 in our account right now, we are still having issues with our account due to our stolen card.
Principal report- Ms. Kent - Academics report - We are putting a lot of time into our state reporting. We have been talking to a lot of parents, and will be speaking to more to look at some of our documents. The family picnic went over really well, especially on the early release day. Health and Fitness day was canceled because of the weather, but we do plan to reschedule this sometime in the fall. We finished our Mstep at the end of May. The students and teachers are LOVING the field trips. Fourth grade clap out is tomorrow as well. Today was the day for negotiations for when school will start in the fall.
Teacher report - Mrs. Maat - Everything is going well, we have a lot of field trips going on right now. Thank you to the PTO for all the field trips. The testing has wrapped up and we are in the downslide.
Teacher appreciation - went really well!!
Family picnic - it was perfect weather, went well for early release
Health and fitness rescheduled - maybe do a back up day? Tough to schedule this time of year with all the kids out with field trips.
BOGO book fair - we sold around $1100, about $2200 value of books that went home. We didn’t have as much response to this book fair as before, but maybe because the kids didn’t see it at school, weather, etc. It was a great thing, just a tough time of year.
Playground - AWESOME! The kids seem to really like it, especially the spinner. There is a long line every recess for that one.
Mr. Shewan assembly - this was SO great!!! Thank you so much to the Elliot family for the bench!
Cartridges - Cooley cricut donation
Box tops - Jenn Deater/Amber - Mrs. Feltman’s can for box tops is missing and we cannot locate them! Mrs. Maat’s class is the closest to making the goal and they are at 78%. We will need to adjust our goals for next year so that we can have an attainable goal.
Labels - not much going on here
Fourth grade clap out - this is tomorrow!! It starts at 2. Heather is going to pick up stuff - shirts, we have lemonade and Mandy is on the cookies.
Angel ride donation - we donated $50 to them in the fall to be on a sign. We have another donation option from them, the lowest amount for donation now is $250. Should we wait and donate in the fall or jump for the $250? Let’s do $50 in the fall.
Field trips - Our total for field trips this year is just over $4600, which is much lower than last year by about $2000. Total major purchases make up about $17,282. We have spent around 75% of what we have raised at the walk-a-thon this year. We have still spoken about putting in a pavilion similar to what is at the high school tennis courts. We also have talked about putting in a water fountain. We will have to make some inquiries into cost of these items. Maybe we could set aside some money towards these purchases in the future. We would like to encourage the third graders to take a field trip, we have heard from some parents that would like to see them participate. We have also talked about a storage shed for the future.
Walk-a-thon meeting - Brookside has had a change in leadership, we will have our initial meeting on June 22 at BWW at 7pm. We may look at breaking off into committees this year. We are possibly bringing in the middle school to participate and eventually even the high school. Elementary will keep the corporate sponsors money.
Do we want to renew or movie license? Our last movie showing we had a lot of rowdy kids. How can we enforce behavior? We need to address this for next year. We have had a lot of request for a carnival, or an international night, or a globe trotter night, sledding party. Maybe we will move to do this events next year instead of movie night and see what the response is.
Girls on the run - haven’t seen a bill yet
Officer elections - we are still working on bylaws. We are looking to break out the treasurer role from the president role. Emily would like to nominate Mandy for the treasurer position. Unless everyone has any objections, we can keep rolling with the positions we have. Everyone is in favor.
