Missed the PTA Meeting on Thursday? At our October 20th PTA meeting, we welcomed Louise Jaffe, Current Chair of the SMC Board of Trustees, and Zina Josephs, President of Friends of Sunset Park, to present “Support” and “Oppose” positions regarding upcoming ballot Measure V. If you would like to learn more about all of the positions that our State PTA and Local PTA units are supporting, please click here.
Our Principal Deanna Sinfield presented her principal’s report. She discussed a number of large campus improvement projects the PTA could support. If you would like to find out more about these projects or how we allocate monies raised through the PTA, please join us at out next Budget Meeting on November 14th at 3:15 pm in Room 3.
Our Carnival Chair Eirlys McKenzie discussed our upcoming Carnival. We still need lots of manpower (that means you Dads!) for our Friday night set-up. If you are able to help, sign up here. We also need more Bring-A-Thing boxes.
We also heard from our Parent Ed group. The program is off to a strong start this year! Please look for a survey that will be distributed in order to gather feedback about what types of Parent Ed presentations you would like to see. Our PTA President Megan Histand presented updates about fundraising, membership, the GS/GSH campaign, and purchases that our membership plans to make through our budget funds (including a bulletin board, a color printer and additional teacher supplies.)
A proposal to update our standing rules was presented by Sean Daly. After discussion, many people attending the meeting felt the proposal would benefit from additional study, so a committee is being formed to work on the proposal before bringing it back to a future PTA meeting.
Due to the Great Shake Out, we ran out of time for the presentation on “Getting to Know Your PTA Budget.”
Hope to see you at the next PTA meeting on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016 at 6:30pm in the Cafetorium. We will be voting on one of our member’s proposed changes to the standing rules in our Bylaws. For more information, we will post the complete agenda 10 days before the meeting on the bulletin board outside Room 3, via E-blast and on our Facebook page (search and “like” us @Franklinschoolsantamonica).
