Jefferson Academy PTO Meeting Minutes :

Those in attendance were: Erin Taylor, Sydney Bowman, Aubree Clark, Rebekah Grow, Amy Oswald, Alivia Burgess
Welcome: Erin Taylor, PTO President
2018-2019 Theme: We have decided to go with the theme of HERO for this school year. Helping Each
other Reach Our dreams. This is a great theme that has the potential to be used throughout the year.
Each of the different activities that we have throughout the year can use this theme to eliminate the
stress of finding a new theme each time. No need to reinvent the wheel.
Newsletter/Website: Rebekah is going to add little snippets about each PTO member to the website so
that parents can become more familiar with each of us. We are also going to start having a PTO specific
newsletter on our website and Facebook page and Rebekah is going to get that started again so that
parents can subscribe on the website.
Back to School Night: This year we are anticipating Back to School Night to be on August 13 th (this has
not been confirmed with the school, we are just assuming based on past years). We are going to have a
scavenger hunt for the students to do and if the go to every stop they will receive a prize at the end. The
stops we’ve included are: PTO board, teacher, front office, bathroom, a specials room and the PTO
table. We will also be collecting Box Tops that night. It will be by family instead of by classroom. This
year we want to focus more on parents and one way we are going to do that is sell Dress Down Pass
Coupon Books at BTS night. They will be $20 for 10 passes. Alivia and Amy are planning on making sugar
scrub for the teachers as a gift to welcome them back to school as well.
Literacy (high priority)
Future PTO Meetings: PTO Meetings will now be held on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 7 pm in
the library – unless otherwise indicated or rescheduled.
