Missed the PTA Meeting on Tuesday? At our November 15th PTA meeting, our Principal Deanna Sinfield presented her Principal’s report. She has noticed an increase in more “hands on” interactions at school.
We approved an audit of our books presented from June through December 2015.
Our PTA President Megan Histand presented updates about fundraising and membership. All education measures in the State of California passed, including our local school measures GS and GSH. The school board has hired Dr. Ben Drati as our new Superintendent, who will begin January 1st, 2017. Dr. Drati comes to SMMUSD from the Santa Barbara Unified School District, where he has served as the Assistant Superintendent of secondary education since 2012.
Our PTA Executive Vice President John Jericiau reported that we collected almost 300 pounds of candy for Operation Gratitude, an organization that annually sends 200,000+ care packages to Veterans and their families. Thank you to all of our families who donated their extra Halloween candy.
A proposal to amend our standing rules was presented. After much discussion and many amendments, the proposal passed. Anyone interested in seeing a copy of the Franklin PTA Bylaws and/or Standing Rules is welcome to email the PTA at email@example.com.
