On our last meeting we started talking about getting the school spirit up. While I was in Sterling Wal-Mart and came across some clearance 4th of July items all for $1 a piece. So before I could get them I need approval from the group. Most of these items are not taged with 4th of July just the use of red, white and blue.
So let's have some fun... Comment with an 😍 emoji for yes and an 🤢 emoji for no below. I have to make a run to Sterling on Monday. So share, share, share
PTSO Committee Description
Each Committee will need to make a report and bring all needed actions to the regular PTSO meeting. If you are unable to attend the regular PTSO meeting please pass along the information to one of your Committee members or to the PTSO Vice-President so they can present your committee’s report at the regular PTSO meeting and a decision can be made at that time.
Coordinate with the school consoler (Mrs. Weers) for the Attendance (Pre-K – 6th) and Honor Roll (7th – 12th) awards (this will only occur twice a year).
Plan teacher gifts, regularly check in with teachers to see if they are in need of something (suggest attending one of the weekly teacher meetings at least once every 2-3 months throughout the school year), and encourage them to attend one of the regular PTSO meetings to request funds.
Family Fun Night
Plan an event for the whole family to enjoy. Brain storm a theme (collaborate with the school they have grants requirements that could assist you in planning this event.) Plan out workshops and fun activities conducive to children of all ages (parents included). We also offer a free dinner at this event. Reach out to other PTSO members/ community members for donations and bodies to help man each of your workshops. Also, ask the School board and principal for their help to keep the order in the school.
Coordinate with Mrs. Sue as to when she is planning the spring concert. You will need to start contacting the teachers Pre-K through 6th to obtain themes for their basket’s 2 months prior to the spring concert and they will have 2 weeks to collect. Talk with local businesses to see if they would be will to sponsor a basket to display in their place of business. If supplies are need and the teachers have asked for help you must submit the request at the next regular PTSO meeting.
Square 1 Art
Contact Heather Wies to see if she is in any need of organizing this fundraiser. When the art returns around November/December. You will need to assemble a team to help brain storm and assemble the kids gifts we decide to make for them with the free stickers the company sends back with the order forms.
Concessions (Recommended Volunteers 6 - 18)
Need to contact Ali Houston to sign up to do concessions. We generally only do one during basketball season. With our Button Fundraiser we should do a least one concession in every sport our school participates in. Plan out a meal to offer to the participant’s and their families.
Box Tops (Recommended Volunteers 1-2)
Promote the Box top program at the school and around town. Collect all box tops from the collection boxes located at the school. Sort and trim box tops, count and send off every 2 months (2 deadlines a year). All new ideas to promote you must bring to the regular PTSO meeting (example: placing a collection box at the store. Bring this idea to the PTSO. VS. you want to use different flyers or posters check in with the school or where you want to hang them to make sure it is alright.)
Ram’s Pride Buttons (Recommended Volunteers 1 - 2)
Create generic buttons for the new school year. Keep close communication with the yearbook committee for photos of sports players. Print out the picture display, Cut out the button with the hole punch, and use the button Machen to create the button its self.
Bulletin Board (Recommended Volunteers 1 - 2)
The bulletin board in the entry way must be decorated every 2 – 3 months in accordance to what activity or fundraiser we would like to promote at the school. (“Welcome back to school”, Box Tops, 5k Fun Run, Square 1 Art, “Have a Wonderful Winter Brake”, Family Fun Night, Spring Auction, Teacher Appreciation week, Week of the Young Child, and Field day/ Last day of School/ “Have an Awesome Summer”/ End of year Awards (Graduates/ High honor for all grades)
Pencil Machine (Recommended 1-2)
Maintain a decent amount of pencil’s in the machine. Count money and submit to the PTSO Secretary. Research for the best deal for pencils.
(We do not organize this event but Megan could use some additional help during the time of the event.)
Akron 5k Color Run (Recommended Volunteers 7 - 30)
Meghan and Heather are the leads on this event. As PTSO is a volunteer organization that helps the school/ Kids with whatever they need we should be a prominent supporting hand for them in this event. Whatever they will need help with. Hand out flyers, pass around the word to anyone and everyone no matter where they live, through color, traffic control if needed (our sheriff’s never showed up last year and extra bodies would be helpful). (PTSO Shirts need and should be worn)
