E.Teacher’s Report –a.Teacher reps? Jenna Larkin lower grades b. Nicole Goldner upper?F.Unfinished Business?Came up with a system of sponsorship to fund the P.E. program. Gold sponsorship level is a banner on the fences, logo on shirt and quarter pg. ad in yearbook=$1500. Silver level includes the logo on the shirt and the ad=$1000. Bronze level includes the logo on the shirt=$500. Could possibly have a banner to put all other smaller levell sponsors on. We need to stick with local businesses and it can’t advertise alcohol or political candidates. It was suggested to begin by putting out information about the sponsorship and offering it to private donations, then open it up to sponsorships.It was also suggested to create a link from the Lenz website to present the PTA agenda and minutes as well as to start a FB page. It would be a good idea to have a poster about needing donations towards the P.E. program at Back To School Night.We will try to get the word out that the P.E. position is available as well (24 hours a week). The suggestion was made to possibly start a wine night again as a fundraiser. G.New Businessa.Jog-a-thon committee needed. Color Run?b.Anyone willing to take on Lenz Prints (work with Debra Cuddy on it this year, take over next year)c.Kindergarten “Boo-Hoo” Breakfast – need helpers. Will set up on front lawn to encourage parents to leave classroom right away, come outside and meet and greet with other Kinder parents. d.Erin – update on scripts programs?It is a good idea to make the Amazon smile program under Elizabeth Lenz PTA more visible to families to help with fundraising.
