5. Budget Requests
a. Kindergarten Field Trip- We received a list of preferred ideas from the Kindergarten teachers, and have tabled it until after the holidays. It was reported by Dr Sheldon that they did get the grant for the trip to the Planetarium from Target, so they will get to do that one which was on the list from the teachers.
b. Rock Climbing Wall- The phy-ed teachers have received $5,000 in funding for the rock climbing wall from The Y. Dr. Sheldon also advised that they had received some final budget numbers and he felt the school could likely cover at least $2,000 or maybe more to the cost. We voted to approve up to $2,000 to complete the funding they needed to move forward.
c. Sound Amplifiers- The cost for these is about $884 per system. We voted to purchase two systems at this time.
6. New or Other Business
a. Meals during conferences- The meal provided by Horace Mann will not work out for our staff due to the tight time limitation. We will instead set up a potluck alternative, sponsored by the PTO, and will have a sign up sheet at the next meeting.
b. Misty, the coordinator from The Y joined our meeting to let us know that they would again be doing a Family Fun Night on January 27th from 7-9pm. This is a free event for Osgood K-1 families to go enjoy The Y. Events will include family zumba, the skate park, the gym and the rock wall. Flyers will be sent home with kids closer to the event.
c. Shannon Jantzi completed setting up a form to be used by the staff when requesting funds from the PTO. We will begin using it immediately
d. Next meeting is Monday January 10th at 7pm
