Grant Writer- Find and submit grants for school (can be done from home)
- I will reach out to Vivienne (held position last year) to see what it wholly entails. Not an official ‘grant’ writing in sense of not-for-profit but more of an application process.
Community Liaison- create community events (pool party, parents’ night out, movie night, restaurant night, etc.)
VII. New Business
a) 5k Fun Run- Ryan Peterson – PTO Fun run – getting all the applications to Monterey County 2nd
weekend in December – Fun Run – Christmas Theme – 3k & 5k. As soon as we hear back from the county we will put out feelers and get Kiwanis and Rotary to have a pancake breakfast following the run.
