Meeting called to order at 8:35 a.m.
Welcome. Lori Shields had a correction for the Oct. 2011 meeting minutes. The correction is that Morgan Robertson is the co-representative, along with Lori Shields for the 4th grade classes. After the correction, Lori moved to approve October’s minutes. Taffy seconded the motion. All were in favor.
The students who participated made money on Genevieve. Call Altee to see how much your child earned. Taffy volunteered to call Altee regarding sending out statements to everyone, so they would know how much money they have made and how much they still owe for their study trips.
Class Representatives for the 4th grade let us know that the 4th graders had a great time at Astro Camp. Mr. Crabb had a question about where the Battle of the Books were. They have come in and are in the office. They need to be taped and labeled before they can be passed out to the different classrooms. The Boosters will be getting that taking care of that soon.
Vacancies: 6th Grade Representative and Bookfair Chair. The Bookfair is in the spring this year, Chantal may be willing to volunteer for this position…she is going to look in to what it involves. She is also working on the cookbook right now. An idea was brought up to have the creating of the cookbook, and cooking some recipes from the cookbook become one of the electives in January. Nara volunteered to help with the cooking portion if this becomes an elective.
New Business: The date for the Dinner/Auction is set for Saturday, April 21, 2012. Taffy is still looking at locations. It has been at the Country Club in the past, but Taffy is also checking out Café Roma as an option. Central Coast Gymnastics has said that they would hold a “Kids Night Out” on the day of the Dinner/Auction, as an option for where to take your kids while you attend the Dinner/Auction.
International Day is set for April 27. Chandrika Jaggia is the chairperson for this event. Please contact her if you have questions, or would like to volunteer to present for this event.
Paige and Kurt are working on script. The script has raised $437 on the first four orders this year.
We would like to put together a Welcome Call Committee, to help new families feel welcome and to answer any questions they may have about Teach. Nara, Jocelyn, Doris, and Taffy agreed to be on this call committee.
Mrs. Rosenfield got the grant she was waiting for in order to run a Math Day at our schools. She needs the Boosters to pay $1000 toward the costs of this day. Chantal moved to pay the $1000 for the Math Day. Nara seconded the motion. All were in favor.
Meeting adjourned at 9:27 a.m.
