PTO News: April 2013

March 2013

April’s PTO meeting was all about the details. We reviewed final numbers for the Leveled Library, discussing what was spent and where the money came from. After reports from individuals and committees, the PTO discussed next year’s calendar. We are considering the possibility of rearranging some large, all-school events, to create more balance throughout the school year. (Currently, March and April are very event-intensive.)

We Need You! As the school year nears its end, we need to ask for volunteers for next year’s PTO Executive Committee– particularly a secretary and a co-chair. The SECRETARY is responsible for taking minutes at all meetings, maintaining a permanent file of meeting minutes, sending out correspondence as needed, and taking care of other paperwork as needed. The CO-CHAIR supports the Chair. S/he is responsible for Room Parents, and s/he writes and submits a monthly report to Honey Bunches of Notes. Co-chair is a two-year commitment, with the second year in the Chair position.

Executive Committee members have one additional meeting per month, to organize information and to plan for the all-school meetings. The CHAIR and the TREASURER also serve on the committee.

We will accept nominations at April’s meeting, segueing into May as necessary. Vacancies are filled by a majority vote of members present at the meeting.

California Pizza Kitchen Fundraiser: The fundraiser was a big success! It was wonderful to see everyone at the restaurant at lunch and dinner, and we delivered a large lunch order to the school for interested HCCS/HP teachers and staff. We raised $313!

Thanks: To Matt, for organizing the PTO closet AGAIN, even though it’s since gotten a bit messed up– AGAIN. To the amazing Fine Arts Committee, who put on a great Talent Night and Art Fair, and to Shellee Almquist, Debbie Bailey, Audrey Becker, Sherri Borer, Matt Cyrulnik, Tim Donahue, Adam Druckman, Heidi Ellis, Alex Foulis, Julie Gales, Karen Giltrow, Peter Knox, Deb Lentz, Vanessa Mayesky, Ellen Meader, Doug Miller, Buddy Paul (lighting design), Darnell Talbert, Bill Van Loo, Al Waters, Cindy Wauer, Bruce Warden, and to the long list of parent volunteers who really stepped up on the night of the show and stage set-up. I’m sure we missed many people. We appreciate everything you’ve done. Finally, thanks again to the Fine Arts Festifools team, including Jane Pacheco and Dennis Crawley, who hosted the project build.
