10/28/16 Friday Notes
PTSA Upcoming Events:
Trick or Treat Street – TONIGHT!
Friday, October 28th
6 – 8:30 pm Grab your friends and wear your costumes for an evening of Halloween and Fall Season fun! This event features a warm meal, lots of games, Booville, storytelling and the famous ‘Haunted Halls’. This is a major fundraiser for CCCK-8 PTSA and helps fund the learning environment enhancements we want to bring to the school. Dinner is $5 per person. Activity wristbands are $5 per person for all activities.
At our meeting last week, we were discussing our goals for the year. We had previously decided that one of our goals should be around fundraising. In a year when district funds are more limited than they have been previously, that made sense. In order to make it a SMART goal, we want to target the fundraising goal for a specific item. We did not come to a conclusion about what that would be though, so we want your feedback. What do you think would be the most important thing that we fundraise for during this school year? This is not to say that we won’t fundraise nor fund other items. This is just about where we should focus our efforts, and to some degree it will help us figure out HOW we should fundraise depending on the amount we need to raise. Some ideas that were thrown out (but are not limited to!):
- Personnel (para-professionals is all we are allowed to fund legally)
- Instructional materials
- Technology equipment
- Professional development
- Another shed
- STEM supplies (i.e. weather station, 3D printer)
- Enrichment (field trips, assemblies)
Please let me know what you think. Tell us on Facebook fb.com/ccck8ptsa or email firstname.lastname@example.org Feel free to speak to any of the PTSA board to let us know your thoughts, too. We appreciate your feedback.
