August Meeting Minutes

The August meeting minutes are posted, and I must say they have had a serious update from last year's drab outlines.

You really get a sense of the meeting.

SO, if you weren't able to make it, please check them out here!

**We are trying to save paper, so those who attend the PTO meetings and plan to approve the minutes please read through them before going to the meeting.  We figure it's just less paper for us to fundraise for! :)

Upcoming Night Meeting on Social Media

Are you worried about your kids around the computer?  So am I, and this month's meeting should help educate all of us about the online realities.

Officer Busse will be there to share her information from the police force (so, we're not talking rumors here -- we're talking about what is really happening in our own city).  Officer Busse is great, and really willing to answer almost any questions.  It's nice to know the officer around campus (where she works full time).

It is currently scheduled for 6:30 pm in the Media Center (or library, for those less-media savy).  Any changes in time will be reflected on the calendar.

So, no Morning meeting on September 4th, only a night one.  See you there!

The first PTO meeting of the year is this Wednesday at 9:15 in the conference room (go in the front office, sign in -- providing photo ID -- and it's to the left in the main office building).  The agenda has been posted here.

Things to be covered in this month's meeting include:

  • Your new PTO board
  • Entertainment book fundraiser
  • Volunteer needs at KMS

As usual there will be information from our Principal, Jama Nacke and a review of our budget.

We'd love to see you there, please email us if there are any questions!
