Election for Vice President
Wow! The Free Movie Night on January 18th was a huge success! More than 200 MV and GS kids with their families enjoyed a private screening of the highly acclaimed french film "Ratatouille."
Brief Minutes from the January 8th Meeting:
Spring Fund-Raiser?— Discussion regarding potential sale of "Rhodies for Reading." Pre-sell Rhodendrons to be picked up at the nursery by the buyers. Proceeds support PTA contributions to Reading at GS and MV.
Vice-President Vacancy— PT PTA VP Steve Schauer has resigned. PTA will elect a replacement at the 2/5 meeting. Please let a Board Mamber know if you would consider serving.
Sock Hop— The next Sock Hop will be held at Grant Street later in the Spring.
Springtime Family Activity— The PTA is looking for an activity for families to enjoy together. Several ideas were discussed, including a Talent Show. Share your ideas for fun activities with a board Member.
How to expand e-Script?— Brief discussion regarding ways to get others to sign up for e-Script contributions. It's a no-cost way to get extra support for our school. How do we get Grandparents in Idaho to sign up and designate MV? Cousins in Texas? Family anywhere? Mr. Brou offered to send info out again with the newsletter.
In June of 2007 the Boards of the Grant Street and Mountain View PTAs voted to combine into one entity- the PT PTA. This group represents and serves the children of both schools. The first meeting is scheduled for Sept. 18th at MV, with the next meeting scheduled for Oct. 2nd at Grant Street. Both meetings begin at 6:30 p.m.
MV PTSA Provides Storytellers for our Community
On February 22nd Joe and Paula McHugh entertained us with their presentation, Shakin' Down the Acorns. With the help of the Grant Street PTA and Mountain View PTSA the storytellers performed at both schools during the day and then performed in the Mountain View Gym on Tuesday evening.
At each show Joe and Paula shared folk tales, tall tales, ghost tales, and some humorous tales. They also played music and shared their "slapjack" dancing man and the highly-popular three-legged chicken! Around a hundred children and adults attended the performance on Thursday evening. PTSA moms also sold baked goods and the new line of Cougar Wear.
Need a new Cougar shirt? They'll be available at the Mountain View Art Show and Science Fair scheduled for February 27th. PTSA next meets at 6:30 on March 6, 2007. Everyone is welcome— Hope to see you there!
