The budget for the present school year was approved by everyone present.
Michelle discussed future service-learning opportunities as well as fundraising.
Prior year’s events will also be planned for the current school year.
The next fundraising event will the Fall Trot to be held in October at the school.
Michelle asked if anyone wanted to join a dance committee. This committee would be responsible for setting up, decorations, chaperoning and cleaning up all the dances, including the 8th grade dance.
One of the parents suggested creating an 8th grade dance committee. The PTA should provide a budget to the 8th grade dance committee. The parents on the committee should raise any other additional funds needed for the 8th grade dance.
