Update from 12/15 EC Meeting
The PTO executive committee (EC) meeting met on Tuesday, December 15th. During the meeting, the EC approved and planned this year’s teacher/staff Christmas gifts from the PTO. Each gift included a $25 gift card, a coffee cake from Boyden’s Bakery, and lottery tickets.
Over the last two weeks, the PTO has been assisting Principal Wilson in a program she invented called The St. Roch Days of Holiday Cheer. Each day, for the ten school days leading into Christmas break, Principal Wilson planned a fun holiday treat or activity for her teachers and staff. The PTO helped to fund and execute these daily events, and they have been much appreciated. Some of the things the PTO supported included purchasing some sweet treats (cupcakes, doughnuts, and a hot chocolate bar), and also organizing a Margarita Fiesta after school.
We love our teachers and staff, and we’re glad for the opportunity to show it! When school is back in session, we will continue to plan snacks, luncheons, and other small treats for this amazing group of people. We’ll need your help to re-stock the snack cart, too, so be on the lookout for a signup genius in January.
In other news, several fundraising ideas are being evaluated, and we’re also continuing to finalize how we will direct PTO funds in 2021. Please plan to attend the next General Meeting (date/time to be announced) for more information and the opportunity to weigh in.
And one final note … we want to wish every member of the PTO (that’s you!) a Merry Christmas! Stay healthy, and see you in the new year!
