Minutes Review from 12/5/17:  Tanya Naylor

Teacher’s Report: Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Jerke (email from Mrs. Williams)

1. I spoke with Julie Donohue and she wanted me to let everyone know she will prepare a Jr. Naturalist station for students on ESTEM night. Our district naturalist will bring animal hides, skulls and bones for students to explore.  Julie and I both have class pet turtles that we will make available for students to observe and Julie thought she might possibly have a pet rabbit available that night as well.  Ideally she would like to use her classroom space for stations.  If that does not work she would like to use the Media Center.  I will plan on helping her set up her stations that night.

(Possible have Glen? Hope to keep everyone in the main area and keep classes closed off. Vendors are set and only one is asking for a donation)

2. Last year there was a discussion about having the All School Valentine Party money become a line item versus asking individual classrooms for $1.00 per student.  Teachers ask for the party money donation one time at the beginning of the year and typically do not receive donations from the entire class.  Party donations are spent on purchasing craft items for holiday parent gifts, individual classroom celebrations, projects, ESTEM and Innovation Week supplies etc. 

(Line item last year was $300, line item this year is $500. Ask the class room to donate $10.00 each instead. Discussed $1 per student, hard to pinch. Suggested to ask each teacher to donate $15 class room instead of $1 per kid. Ask for a decrease from PTC down to $400. Discussion about replacement of games and supplies. Valentines is not run by PTC. Heather will be asked to email a request for funds. Sign up Genius to lead parents for each activities. Help desk buddies. Review the amount being asked for to teachers and plan accordingly for next year.)

3. As PTC teacher reps we typically send out an invite to staff to come and greet families at ESTEM Night.  I am happy to send this message out again this week.

(A teacher rep will come to ESTEM night)

 

Principal’s Report: Mrs. Molitor

-Classroom push brooms

-IXL Reading and ELA

(Short a custodian, suggested that PTC purchase Hoky’s for each class room for a total of $512. Tabled for the month till a review of finances to determine if there is funds. IXL Reading and ELA program on IPads discussion on how teachers use them. To continue 150 seats current quote is for $2025, school set aside $1500.

CARES Awards, tickets to be handed out and they do a draw system. Give students a list of things to give tickets out for, need to cut back on the cost and reduce to just one student to have breakfast with the principal instead everyone. $600 budget for CAREs from PTC. Extraordinary actions would be exception to tickets. Add a CAREs recognition budget line to PTC.

Intermediate Update

 1. We are able to get back the $4,200 snack cart money from the district office. We need to use the money by the end of the school year. Are we restricted to only using for snack cart or can it be used for other Glendale needs? Question for Lynn, do we have snack cart needs? Better snacks, additional cart? How much of the $4200 do you need?

If we do have money left over we can discuss more and get the BUILT team involved and see what the needs are for the school. I know a new sound system for the gym has been on the radar for awhile. It was on Sams hit list before he left.

2. A check has been cut for $500 out of our Hope Foundation fund for Evelyn Godoy family. A card has been purchased and signed on behalf of Glendale and the PTC. Mrs. Ryan will be delivering to family.

 3. A message was sent out from Mrs. Williams to all teachers for each classroom to donate $15 towards the Valentines Day Party. Along with the PTC $500 budget it should be an awesome party. Look for a sign up genius if you can volunteer during the day.

 4.  Invoices have been tracked down where we had purchased the Ipads and Chromebooks in years past to get the serial numbers and see if we still have them on school grounds. Findings will be shared at the next meeting.

 5. Angie reached out to other 719 schools to see what they do for their school stores. Redtail and Jeffers don’t have school stores. Grainwood has one but she doesn’t know what they sell. No response from Westwood and Five Hawks yet.

 6. ESTEM is on the 19th, still looking for volunteers. Signup genius is on FB and seesaw.)
