Week of January 30

MANDATORY Trip Meeting This Thursday!

Our February Booster Meeting will focus on the trip.  All students and parents need to attend if at all possible.  Barb­­ with Travel with Barb will be with us to go over the itinerary and answer any questions we may have.

Keep in mind: The final trip payment amount will probably not be announced.  It is still a little early for this number to be determined.  We want an accurate number, and we also want to avoid confusion, so it is in our best interest to be patient and wait.

Another note regarding the last payment:  PLEASE DON’T MAKE THE PAYMENT YET!  Budget for the full amount of $325, but please don’t send it.  Should this payment go down, we will need to send out refunds, and that is a lot of extra work for our treasurer. We love our treasurer–please don’t create extra work for her!  

Coffee, Movie Tickets, Krispy Kreme

These orders should be turned in PRIOR to the meeting this Thursday.  We will have a table set up outside the auditorium.

Officer Positions Available

Treasurer position open for next year!  This is a great opportunity to volunteer where you are needed!  We are seeking someone with attention to detail. If you have questions about this position, please don’t hesitate to ask!  Just respond to this email with your questions. Having our new treasurer on board before school is out this year would be optimum, to ensure a smooth transition.

Other positions available:  Vice President, Communications, Gateway Mall Coordinator, Photographer/Videographer
