Teach Boosters Meeting Minutes June 2011

Teach Boosters Meeting Minutes
June 6, 2011

Attendees: Nara Clark, Pia Laurie, Doris Kim, Altovese Vigil, Sunshine Cowgill, Dan Block, and Jocelyn Leonard

Meeting called to order at 9:35 a.m.

Melody Hunt from Otis Spunkmeyer came by to make a presentation regarding her product. The Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough can be combined with Genevieve for our fall fundraiser.

Altee moved that we do a self-organized, athletic themed idea on our own, without having to sell other people’s stuff. The idea to branch out on our own then morphed into many ideas of things we could do to raise money ourselves, while keeping more profits for the kids’ study trips. The motion was seconded by Nara and Pia. Sunshine nominated Pia to be the Fall fundraiser chair. Pia will also send out invoices to students who participate so they will know how much money they have raised toward their study trips. Sunshine will e-mail the Teach parents regarding fall fundraising ideas.

Treasurer’s Report: The Auction profit was $11, 298.30. There are still some outstanding bills coming in at the end of the school year. Altee and Sunshine are thinking we may need to change banks. There have been some difficulties at the current bank. We are thinking of separating the student council funds from the main funds. The student council funds may stay at First Bank, but we may take our main funds elsewhere. Sunshine and Altee will work on this.

Elections: Altee nominated Sunshine for President. All were in favor. Sunshine was elected. The other nominations/elected board members are as follows: Taffy Gonzalez for Vice President, Altee Vigil for Treasurer. Altee will have help from Pia Laurie. Jocelyn Leonard for Secretary. We still have an opening for 6th grade parent representative. The 5th grade parent representatives will be Nara Clark and Riana Baxter. We still have an opening for 4th grade parent representative. Pia will handle student accounts. Paige Wright, Altee Vigil, and Nara Clark will handle the Ice Cream Social. Angelia Moore will take care of e-script. Mary Ellis took over Box Tops this last year. Sunshine will ask her if she will continue for next year. There will be T-shirt order forms at the Ice Cream Social.

Meeting adjourned at 10:48 a.m. Have a great summer!
