Treasurer report - not much going on - Drama donation and Holiday Shop
Teacher report - Ms. Stickler & Mrs. Scheible - Thank you for gift certificates!! March reading month, book fair will be the week of March 16 and the reading night will be the same night as book fair night. Science materials is something that the teachers may be looking for. Let’s do 3 bunsen burners, one for each fourth grade class. There may be some other requests for the science fair coming up in February as well.
Principal report - Ms. Kent - Academic report - The holiday shop with the help went well. Maybe bags for everything next year? Let’s make a parent event of a Cran-Hill Ranch day, thinking sometime in early February. They will open up a few different events for us to do there. What the cost to us? Let’s do it!!
Holiday shop recap - Stefanya has some pros and cons - Bags and tags - some suggestions: make sure the kids have lists of who to shop for, maybe have fourth graders pair with the kindergarten, more high schoolers, and maybe more selection, more guy stuff. Cap the total to $10, keep the $1 per item.
New Business :
walk-a-thon money - We have to get this going!! We have some playground items that we are looking at. The items are pogo and spinning seats and we are thinking 4 for primarily the upper elementary. We will do 4.
We just got the title money in so we do not need to order any Chromebooks!!
Hokie stools - Ms. Cole would like 2 or 3 of them and they are $200 total. Approved.
Standing desks - Deater and Mrs. Zocco - 4 standing desks for total of $862. Approved.
Roller rink - We have a free party in February. When can we do this?? Not on the early release day. We can’t do it during their regular business hours? Can we do the party as Valentines Day bash for everyone? Maybe Friday Feb. 12, leave it just as a dance party with no skates. Mandy will call and talk to the people at the rink. Could we do 12:30- 2:30? - We have extra roller rink passes that we can give out at book fair and science fair.
Science Fair - Angie - We had said about $20 per group, also maybe a small donation for Card Wildlife center. The robotics kids want to do something with magnets this year, and may need a little more money to invest.
Assemblies - Mandy - We talked about doing a science fair/magic assembly the week of science fair. There is a star lab through the MOISD that we could maybe set up. Can we approach anyone at Ferris?? February 22 would be a day open for an assembly. Also, maybe a local author that we could bring in during March. The book fair is a 70s groovy theme. Angie has a contact with a Girls and Engineering event that we could bring to the school as well. Mrs. Zocco will connect with Angie on this, take place on a Monday or Tuesday so the gym is available. Maybe for 3rd and 4th graders.
Box Tops - Deater is taking over the Box Tops
Book Fair - Family dinner - we are doing the nachos again. Heather Butts and Megan Knopf will take this over. Do we need honor students for this?
Teacher Appreciation - May 2-6 - ideas?
Mr. Shewan - Set assembly date for end of the year - Can we incorporate it into the Family Picnic, May 20 (early release day as well) This is a pretty crazy day, so a different day would be better. How about Friday May 27? - Make joke book from the kids
