  1. Dr. Stringfellow and Maryanne Crawford gave a brief history of the SKSD budget and school aged population from before Stringfellow became superintendent until now. There is a $1 million shortfall going into next year and they want feedback from parents on what is important to keep, what is negotiable to cut, etc. to make up this deficit. Parents expressed many ideas such as the importance of the DLI program, class size, transportation, offering incentives for early retirement, job sharing, and more. Stringfellow and Crawford will be going to PTO meetings at the other 6 schools.

  2. Kileen Urian moved to approve Sept. meeting minutes; Jeanine Silversmith second; approved unanimously.

    3. Treasurer’s Report:

    Beginning balance - $13,691.86**

    Total income - $200.22 Total Disbursements – ($2,482.71)

    Ending balance - $11,409.67

    Budgeted Funds - $37,303.93 Unencumbered Balance - ($25,895.26)

    **This amount is different than the ending balance from August ($13,509.89) since there were several checks from last year that were lost or destroyed (gift for Kim Levi, yearbook reimbursement for Kerry Fournier, ice cream social reimbursement for Sarah Denis).

    4. The teachers would very much appreciate a membership to RRIE. We will reach out to the other schools to see if this is something we can do together.

    5. Hawkathon went very well. Thank you to Kileen and Lindsey for organizing and to the over 40 volunteers who helped out. We received over $4000 in pledges and they’ve started to come in. We also raised $442 from the t-shirt sale.

    6. The Pavilion Kit has been ordered and will be received in March or early April. We have to wait for the kit before we can create the patio. Brick sales close soon; flyer to go home again in a couple weeks.

    7. Kidcycle: Ad sales are strong so far; we’ve brought in about $1,200 for the program. People can sign up for the bake sale and a few more scene parents are still needed.

    8. Autumnfest and Book fair: this Friday! More cakes and pumpkins are needed – please bring them Friday. Volunteers are needed this Thursday at 3:15 to set up and all day Friday for the book fair.

    9. 4th Grade Fundraiser: still need parents to volunteer to run. One idea is the Kidstuff coupon book.
