Members of Jayhawk Elementary PTO met on Tuesday, April 3, with Brandy David, President, Bonnie Riley, Treasurer, and Angela Holt, Secretary, present. Also in attendance was Courtney Lanham.
Bonnie reported that there is currently $4,373.42 in checking, and $8,203.00 in savings. Checks from Tyson labels and Box Top labels are in.
The Mother/Son Kickball was Friday, April 20, at the ballfields. Games started at 6 p.m. PTO had a cost of $340 in expenses, and brought in $355.25. Overall, the event seemed to be a great success, and everyone had fun. PTO did discuss a couple of small concerns, and will establish more rules for next year. People would have liked to have more dads actively help with the event. Otherwise, it was positive reviews.
Teacher Appreciation Week
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6-11. Discussion was held over goody days and special tokens of appreciation. Food days will be on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. These will include salsa, dips and chips; a breakfast/yogurt bar; and a finger-food day. Tuesday and Thursday will include one day for supply day, and another day will have a small gift delivered to the teachers. It was also suggested to pass out candy bars for the district bus drivers.
After further discussion, it was decided that PTO would not be able to adequately provide a successful field day. There will be a better possibility to have one next year, with more planning.
In lieu of a Field Day, PTO will provide popcorn and soda for the students on the last day of school. In addition, each class will receive water balloons courtesy of the PTO. There will need to be volunteers to help with this.
Discussion was had about posting a poll to Facebook in order to get parents’ input about events hosted by PTO this past year, as well as suggestions for other things they would like to see.
It was also noted to add Para & Aide Day, and Custodian Day, for next school year.
With no further business, the meeting was adjourned.
