PTC Minutes from October 7, 2015

Texas Roadhouse presented many of the options for fundraising for our group to consider. They even provided some sample snacks for tasting. The group decided to have a Texas Roadhouse Night on February 15th. We will send out flyers to our students so they can distribute to their family and friends.  Texas Roadhouse will be helping provide the food for our Robotics event at OTES and they would sell Texas Roadhouse gift cards at the Holiday Bazaar. They also provided many incentives for the classroom teachers to use in their classrooms or for Student of the Month Awards.

Tina DeMerchant reported the group sold about $600 worth of food and Tim Horton Cups at Riverfest. The group decided to distribute the remaining Tim Horton Cups to the Teachers on Friday, October 9th.  Tina asked the group if wanted to continue with the Tim Horton Cups. Debbie Emery, parent and co-worker at McDonald's had an alternative idea to consider. McDonald's would sell coffee mugs for our school and the coffee fill up would be .50 for a lifetime!!! The group thought this would be a good opportunity. Debbie will pursue the purchase and report back to the group next month.

Nicole Lawson reported about the fall fundraiser. The company will do a small assembly to kick off the selling on October 9th. The fall fundraiser will run for 10 days and be distributed around the Holiday Bazaar time.

Tiffany Palmer reported about the upcoming Paint and Chat event at the Boomhouse on October 26th from 6 pm to 8 pm. This is a trial event to see if these type of activities are of interest to our parents. The first one will be taught by Valerie Wallace. There are only 25 slots available for this first event. If you are interested in participating please contact Tiffany Palmer at or call 478-8949. Dr. Tuell will include this in her weekly message.

The Holiday Bazaar will be held on December 5th from 9 am to 2 pm. Tiffany Palmer and Destiny Rand will be in charge of the Bazaar this year.
