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.
