Old Business:

  Discussion of Explora Night - Grant written by Thordahl, night was well attended

  Yearbook order deadline has passed, ended up with 356 books ordered (loss of ~$356 under the renegotiated contract, about $130 more than if we hadn't renegotiated)  next year we will base the price on ~250 yearbook order since that is the number of online orders we had.

  Quick discussion of PTO spending on fieldtrips.  reasserted that we are not going to use funds to offset field trip costs, we want the money to go to things that will last for years

 2nd grade will be using some money to buy planters and supplies to use with earth day teachings

 Kinder recieved their OSMO genius kits for their iPads

  4th grade recieved 4 pencil sharpeners  - PTO reminded them of their original request for planters that was declined, and that if they wish to pursue it under the earthday premise, that we would approve.

  1st grade recieved 2 pencil sharpeners

Roller Skate City Night - had over 70 in attendance - still waiting on check
