Project updates:

Applied for high efficiency lights for the building, had a representative out who did a full survey. Hoping for it to happen this summer.

Found a sidewalk improvement project, that lets us submit some of our walking paths for possible improvement. Discussed which to submit and will do so.

Event updates:

Variety show was a great success. Kids had a great time, and somehow not one kid had to skip because they were sick. Also came in under budget, and raffled off a scooter for additional fund savings.

Biscuits with Beauties was changed to Biscuits at Bethany, and then due to a gas main collision Chick Fil A could not make the biscuits, a last minute rally got donuts from Krispy Kreme, which Chick Fil A physically went and paid for at 11pm, so it because Donuts with Dudettes. It ended up being great.

Dinner night out was very successful at McMenamins generated about $1500 for the PTO.

Green Team

TVWD Tualatin valley water district assembly for some grades that hadn’t already had it. Topic was water conservation.

Book swap/Eye glasses/cosmetics – went well, some extra books went to the school and some to NW children’s outreach.

Bike safety event had decent attendance, some bikes went home and some got donated at the end.

RFFs: (Request for funds)

Regular RFF’s only done every other month

Emergency RFF approved to pay for the Donuts for Biscuits At Bethany. See above for what happened. But Chick Fil A physically paid for it the night of so funds shouldn’t be needed.
