PTSO Meeting May 20, 2014

1. Sra. Marta

Amities- Sara Hutton asked if we could spread the word to try to help find a coordinator (like Phyllis Kern here). Once they have a coordinator, they could try to find host families, then hiring.

Coffee Maker- Old one broke. Marta purchased a new one for about $250. She asked teachers to chip in and there is a balance of about $100. Could the PTSO, support the balance? Motion made, seconded and passed.

Karen Sherman- Asking for “Lunch Lady” Spanish books. Food service bought the English set. Set in Spanish would be $28? Looking for 10, so $280. Discussion about why the cost for Spanish version is so high when English book is only $7. Hoping to find them cheaper. Motion made to give $150 to try to buy the books. Seconded and passed.

2. Sra. Hendrickson- Americorp math tutor needed. Must be 18 years old. Would like some Spanish.
