From the Parent Association

The Parent Association will have its next meeting on Thursday, June 3rd, 12:30 in the Parent Room.  (If it’s a large group or unbearably hot – we’ll meet in the auditorium.)  In addition to hearing the latest from the Faculty and Board, we’ll talk about our group’s goal and objectives for next year and start planning for the first few events of 2010-2011 school year.

Highlights from the last meeting, include:

•           Officers for the Parent Association were selected/elected.  Ashley Comer & Veronica Harris will remain as co-chairs and Greg Romeo as treasurer; Dave Nash and Veronica Harris are willing to remain as parent reps to the Board but would also be willing to give up the position to involve other interested parents; the role of secretary needs to be filled.

•           The group voted to donate $500 to Grounds Committee for beautification of play areas – especially the area in front of the Yellow House.

•           May Fair raised approx. $2600 .  We would like to extend a special thanks to all of our volunteers.  This event allowed the PA to fulfill its fundraising commitment to the school’s budget and have a little money left in the PA coffers.

•           Next year the role of PA Class Parent will be split into two distinct roles: Room Parent – to support the teacher and class, and Parent Council Representative – to focus more on school policy issues.  The Parent Council will be a subset of the Parent Association and will meet seasonally or as needed.

As always, please contact Ashley (ashleybcomer@gmail.com) or Veronica (jeffandv2000@yahoo.com) if you have any questions or topics you would like to see on the agenda.
