It would be great to get everybody updated with some new attire to show SCHOOL SPIRIT!!!! They are available in red or grey short sleeve and cost $10.00 (youth) $12.00 (adult) $15.00 (XXL) and the black long sleeve cost $14.00 (youth) $18.00 (adult) and $20.00 (XXL). Order forms will be sent home with the elementary students or are in the office. Fund-raising ideas: *t-shirts *Tupperware sales *Cake pans and ect. *Cookies by the pound *May 5th serve for conferences *tailgating for homecoming *Spring 2009 community day sale We will continue to revisit these options Future PTO events: *We have asked the teachers to let us know what there classrooms need to make there days easier. It sounded like projection units would be a great help to everyone. Maybe having each teacher creates a “wish list” for what they would like in their classroom. We will look into this and see what the cost would be to get started. *Bringing school spirit and fun back into homecoming! Possibly serving food at a junior high dance as well as a separate senior high dance. Tailgating, homecoming buttons, etc. Next meeting Monday May 5th, 7pm. We hope to see lots of you there.
