Dinner with Santa
Discussion over the 2017 Dinner with Santa was had. A total of cost/profit was not yet available.
This year’s Dinner with Santa has been tentatively set for December 8, 2018. It was agreed to provide local music and dance groups (Rockin’ Hawks, etc.) times to give short performances during the dinner. Future auction items were also discussed.
The Penguin Patch shop was a great success for the students. PTO received $255.35 back from the sale, which was 10% of total sales made. December 2018 will have the Penguin Patch be during the week of December 10-14. Discussion was had over possibly having the Penguin Patch store available on December 8th during the Dinner with Santa.
