Facebook Page –  Ola Rocha/Summer Hennessey

Our Facebook page is going well and we have over 200 likes. We have received some feedback from parents and many find it easier to get information from Facebook than the website. Please like our page at https://www.facebook.com/tularcitos.PTO/?fref=ts

Reading Week –  Ryan Peterson

We had a great turnout and some new teachers reading this year. We also saw good participation at the read-ins. In total we had over 300 participating in no screens, which is a great number. Additionally, a huge thank you to Robyn and Joy for all their hard work on the talent show this year.  We appreciate you!



Ways and Means – Ryan Peterson/Summer Hennessey

We approved $4164.00 for grant requests. This was to pay for items such as; art project supplies, headphones, multi-media headsets w/ microphones, mission building day supplies, books, a lamp, chairs, and a cubby system. Ms. Morgan needed 200.00 for consumable supplies which we don’t normally fund but made an exception this time as some of her stipend funds were used for items that we would have approved in Ways and Means.

Robyn Rauh made a motion to approve, Nakelle Fitzpatrick provided a second.
