Katie Cole moves to approve the proposed 2015-16 PTO Board positions. Amy Strezo seconds the motion. All in favor of the 2015-16 PTO Board positions. Motion passed unanimously.
Will plan a Parent’s Night Out (PNO) in order to fund the Outdoor Classroom for sometime during the 2015-16 school year, with construction to occur during Summer 2016.
Amy Strezo suggests Bearpath as a possible location for the Parent’s Night Out. The want is to have the first PNO be accessible to all parents and Bearpath might be a little pricy. Brunswick Zone is also suggested as a possible venue.
Possibility of moving the Live Auction from the Carnival to the PNO was discussed. With the thought it might allow parents to spend more time on reviewing the items and on bidding.
Timing suggestions are a Friday night in April as there is a lull in sports and other activities for a few weeks then. Dates proposed are 4/22/16 or 4/29/16.
Next steps are getting pricing and availability for the venue and creating a planning committee. Amy Strezo will follow up with Brunswick Zone in regards to availability and pricing. Once we have that in place, we will reach out to school parents in order to form the planning committee
