Treasure report - Mandy - Most expenses lately has been the PE equipment Field Trips.
Teacher report - No representative present
Principal report - Academics reporting -
Field Trips went well and everyone is very thankful for them. Teachers loved teacher appreciation as well. Some suggestions for next year - more communication for chaperones - ALL chaperones should be paid for by PTO, can they buy a sack lunch (maybe PTO can pay), make sure they know NOT to buy anything extra for kids (including extra food treats, gifts, additional features of the field trip that is not included for all kids).
Clap out- went well and great feedback.
Fitness Day - kids always love this day and is a huge hit.
Teacher/Para Day - We heard lots of positive! Great work!
Box tops - Maggie - Nothing new, picking and sending in last minute box tops tomorrow. Everything will be turned over to Katie for next year.

Music - we approved $1,000 for Mrs. Lamar to purchase some new instruments that will stay at Riverview. Approved - additional $300 for extra music materials. Mrs. Lamar is very appreciative.
Summer Walk-A-Thon meeting- Will be the last wednesday of the month for June and July - June 28th at Vivos - 6:30. Emily is inviting Brookside
Kick off will be 4 weeks prior to event. September 8?
Send out FAQ document with walk information.
What will we do to Ms. Kent this year? Come up with 3 or 4 options and let the kids decide.
Looking at possibly October 7th for the event - Mandy is checking on HS availability.
Could we have registration available at open house?
We may do individual school incentives this year and no food incentives (lunch with the principal is a big hit).
Discussed theme - thinking “Step Up” maybe give away pedometer for students hitting a goal.
Flyer about PTO spending-
We made $36,000 from the walk a thon, $23,000 was spent and another $8,000 will go to savings.
Will go home at the beginning of next year.
Will go on the door and sent via email.
Open house - August 23rd from 4-6
We will need volunteers to work open house.
Cooley attended a meeting at the salvation army - they are starting a “tools for schools” campaign and want to give away backpacks filled with school supplies at the open house.
We need volunteers to man the salvation army table where people can register for a backpack.
Treasure report - Mandy - Most expenses lately has been the PE equipment and Teacher Appreciation. Not much else.
Teacher report - Mrs. J. Defever & Mrs. Bender - We have a lot of field trips coming up, will PTO cover the cost for chaperones/volunteers?? YES!! Mrs. Defever will be teaching K next year and needs a rug. We can use Scholastic Dollars, Amber will send the link. Thank you for the extra Hokie stools and beans for the beanbags, the kids have really appreciated them!! The field trip forms are still the same for teachers to submit to PTO. Mrs. Bender has CDs that can be read with books and is looking to get a system for the kids to have a CD player with headphones. We can get this with Scholastic Dollars as well!!
Principal report - Academics reporting - We are in the last round of assessments, 3rd and 4th Grade are doing the MStep now. The kids are getting a little more of a break in between testing this year, which is nice. We won’t see results from that until the fall sometime. The teacher had some professional development over the last early release day.
Mr. Miller PE Stuff - Assembly reveal? The equipment is already being used, Mr. Miller is super excited about it all as well!! Maybe over Health and Fitness Day we will do a “reveal” of some sort.
Box tops - Maggie - We did receive a check from Box Tops. Maggie’s son will be moving up to 5th grade and she won’t be able to do Box Tops next year. Katie has volunteered to do Box Tops next year.
Shop-A-Roo - Katie - Nothing new. Mandy will check to see when we received the check last year. It doesn’t seem like we have many users. Maybe have a receipts basket for people to drop receipts. Or a table at the Walk-A-Thon to help people sign up.
