The record shall reflect that the minutes of our October meeting stand as written.
Each school’s PTA was asked by The Council of PTAs to choose words to describe describe their school. The word that was chosen for Plaza from our list was "immersive." A plaque with each of the words chosen to describe all of the schools in Baldwin was presented as a gift to the Board of Education from all the PTAs. This plaque was presented at the Community Input Meeting last month.

 

At the community input meeting we also saw a preview of the Baldwin High School musical production of Shrek, which was excellent. I highly encourage you to attend Shrek at Baldwin High School this weekend.
We need to put together a committee of people to serve as the Nominating Committee for next year's PTA Board. We need five people total. Of those five, one person must be a committee chair, one must be a committee chair/board member, and three people are needed who are not committee chairs.
Feb 6 is Founder's Day - Miki Hilberger and Deena Amato McCoy are on the Honorary Life Committee and they still need one more person.
We need another volunteer to audit the books along with Karen Wunsch.
Rhonda Simmons volunteered and was accepted.
We recently received a large anonymous donation of $500, that will help us put on events in the future.

 

PRINCIPAL'S REPORT:
Mr Gray - This is the last meeting of 2016 year, but I am looking forward to hanging out with many of you at the holiday breakfast and the holiday concerts.
We give GoldenTickers to kids for great behavior. We have already bestowed this honor on several children, but the actual necklace have been ordered and will be presented when they arrive.
We are up to the third lesson in the mindfullness curriculum and it has been great for me to interact with the kids.
Later on each child will contribute to a mural with help of a resident artist.
