The Holiday Craft Time was talked about.  The Lower Elem will be on Monday, December 15th from 2-3 and the Upper Elem will be on Wednesday, December 17th from 2-3.  We will have 1 craft, make reindeer food and have a snack.  

Jason Marlow, Iowa State Trooper, will be at the school on Friday, January 9th.  He will be talking to the students.  He will be in the 2nd grade room from 12:45-1:15, 3rd and 4th grade from 1:30-2:15 and the 5th and 6th grade from 2:30-3:00.  

The PTO will be doing a Pizza Ranch Fundraiser in Mt. Pleasant on Monday, March 9th from 5-8.  We will be in charge of busing the tables.  We will get 10% of the sales from this time and all tips people may leave.  We are hoping people will volunteer to help with this.  We are also talking about asking the 3-6 grade students to sign up for certain times to come and help.  All lower elem students will be more than welcome to come and help but a parent will have to stay with them at all times.

The January meeting will be skipped and the next meeting will be Monday, February 2nd.  A week earlier than normal but this is due to Parent Teacher Conferences the next week.

Meeting was adjourned at 5:55 p.m.
