Apres Creekside-Decemeber 20th at Auld Dubliner after school; PTO sponsored ornament making for kids.
Classroom Reps: Hows it going? Kim (who is a rep for 2nd grade) would like to do more to help. Classroom rep roles discussed. Job description depends on the teachers needs; Jeff to discuss with teacher on how to utilize the classroom reps. PTO Board members to join teachers on Friday 12/14 at 1045 to brainstorm ideas for ways to engage classroom reps. One way that was agreed upon was that the C.R. can be a liaison between the teachers and the PTO meetings.
Met with Placer County re: lot across from fire station for a more permanent location for Creekside= no go. Although Squaw is very motivated to keep Creekside in Squaw but no commitment was made for anything long term.
Annual Fundraising Gala date set on May 10th at Alpine Meadows. Theme to be Las Vegas (what happens at the Gala stays at the Gala). Committee meetings to start in January. Casino tables, couches, DJ, dancers for entertainment. Volunteer roles to be set and made more concrete than in years past. Tickets to be sold thru Event Brite, decision needs to be made for pricing, creation of banners, posters (list on poster what the fundraiser is specifically for) etc. Idea thrown out to put large auction items online so all can participate. Check with Spin to see if he has any input on how to do this.
