Maturation during the day: Overall success. A few parents complained about having to take off work to come and also how a lot of kids were there unaccompanied by their parents so they were a little misbehaved.
White Ribbon Week: Thank you Betsy Perry. Teachers loved it during the day and how the kids could get stuff.
FYI: 180ish Powerades left. Maybe use for field day volunteers.
Amy McMullin: Field trip season. Thank you for the extra $$$
PTC Dinners: We will have 3 student teachers and possibly 6 practicum teachers for the dinner.
Kindergarten Orientation: We need 6 adults plus student leaders. There will be a volunteer sign-up sheet at Kindergarten Orientation for new parents coming in.
Battle of the Books: MCE PTA pays ½ and Midas Creek pays the other ½. Heidi, Jenni & Nichole going to Butterfield Elementary on Monday, March 13th to watch 2 teams battle. We could use Scholastics buck to buy books for this. For 3rd-6th graders.
Day at the Capitol: Thanks to Heidi for attending. PTA gave Lt. Governor a check in volunteer hours. 90hrs per person per parent volunteer in Utah. Thanks to our Legislators for last year: We got more $$$.

Business/Spirit Night Partnerships. Maybe have Fun Run Committee over the Spirit Nights since we don’t start Spirit Nights until after the Fun Run.
Volunteers: Do we need a new way/system? Maybe a phone tree? Have room mom outline? Email teachers to give names of volunteers? Thinking of asking Carrie Twitchell to be over volunteers.
