Parent Guild Notes 10/7/15

Highlights of the meeting on 9/29/15:
• A big thank you to all who came to the meeting. We had 20 families sign in which meant 20 families received a free jean day on Wednesday, September 30th. It was a great turnout and we accomplished many things.

• Coke Rewards: we needed someone to chair and Mr. Ochab agreed to be in charge of Coke Rewards. Please continue to send the codes into school.

• We also had a volunteer to head the Campbell Soup Labels. Thank you to Rebecca Knappmann for volunteering for that big job as well.

• We looked in to Kellogg’s Rewards but they do not allow multiple people to donate for a school.

• Parent Guild has started fixing the score board in the gym. They have ordered new light bulbs. There are a couple of options for the score boards. There needs to be some analysis of which way would be best for the school.
o One option has Cabrini donating their old scoreboards when they renovate their gym
o Another option is fixing ours and making a cage over the lights so they aren’t destroyed

• CYO and Parent Guild are working together to raise funds for new soccer fields and a new concession stand, with the possibility of renting the fields for tournaments and/or hosting tournaments to generate money for the sports programs. CYO is planning fundraisers, stay tuned for more information.

• Parent Guild would also like to mention that Apple Charlie’s donated all the apples and sold us the containers at a great price so if you are looking for somewhere to go with the family, visit Apple Charlie’s to thank them for their generosity.

• Movie night for October is set for October 30th. The chosen classes get to choose the movies for the evening. More details to follow.

• New Marketing Position. One nomination was made and congratulations to Amanda Jones who is the Marketing Chairperson. She was voted in by acclimation.

• Applefest: Thank you to everyone who helped out during the cold and rain to make Applefest a success. A special thanks to Maria Watson who took on the task of organizing, and everyone who donated their time to the cause. The treats looked amazing!

• Auction: Tickets are on sale on line mark the date on your calendar, November 7th. It will be a fantastic evening! More details to follow
