OTES Parent Teacher Committee
September 9, 2015
Welcome to new and old members. Here’s to a new year.
Dorothy Dawson opened up the meeting with a thank you for supporting the Robotics Club. She has offered us an opportunity for concessions on November 21 from 8-4 at the High School. The event will be the Regional Competition. We were in agreement that this would be a good event for us to take on. Shifts will be taken and volunteer spot donations will be set up. Lindsey is heading it up.
Volunteer slips are in the office if you would like to volunteer during school hours. Volunteer opportunities are numerous; library, Friday helpers, events, etc.
Treasurer Update (Tina) $791.00 in box tops. Keep collecting!!!!!!!!
$94.00 from Coca Cola Caps Spaghetti Dinner (September 17) 4:30-6:00 visit classroom, dinner 5-7:00. Price is donation. Raffle baskets will be offered. Set up and clean up help would be greatly appreciated. Riverfest (Sept. 26): selling Chili/Chili Dogs, drinks, etc. Volunteer Spot will be up for volunteers to bring items and to do shift work throughout the day. We will sell the Tim Horton cups ($8.00). Fall Fundraiser: Great American Opportunities. The representative will present the sale items and such to the children in Oct. There will be three pamphlets in the order. Sale dates will be mid Oct. and all items will be here before the Thanksgiving Holiday. We will make a 40% profit on all items sold.
A 1 year discount app card was in the discussion; $20.00. We would make a $10.00 profit on sales. More information to come.
Margarita’s Night is tentatively set for Veteran’s Day; not sure where it is a Wednesday night if it will work.
Kristin Bird and Adele are heading up the on-line auction. (app. $3,000.00 profit and so much fun). Teacher donations will be discussed from the classrooms.
Holiday Bazaar on Dec. 5. Tiffany and Adele will head it up. Heidi will head up the concessions part. Volunteer spot will be up for donations and help closer to the event. Some ideas were a stationary table (25 cents a card for children to make them).
Monthly incentives for box tops; possibly an extra recess time for the community who sends in the most.
Paint/Sip: @the Boomhouse. A possible fee of 25-35 dollars that includes easel space, canvas and paints. Drinks are on your own. Different teachers to teach the class and once a month. A test class will be done in Oct. then follow up in Jan. if interest is there.
Governor’s restaurant in the spring; tie it in with the Book Fair.
Other ideas: Pie auction @Thanksgiving
Appleby’s, Texas Roadhouse or Uno’s for events.
Thanks for a great start everyone.
