Parent Club Officer Meeting on September 18th.
Stefani Wyant, Megan Olsen, Tiah Devin and Holly Starr were present
Was identified quickly to get the club up and running we need a start up fund of $250 for Bank.

Potential items the school needs help with are:
• Robotics program
• Supplies in the classroom
• Field trips for youth
• Various rewards and activities
• Music, etc…

Armand outdoor concessions is rarely used so the Officer meeting attendees mobilized and we now have a concession stand we are working to build and run to be discussed further at October 4th meeting as this is the only fund raising we have determined thus far to build this program.

We will need volunteers to help raise money for our school here!!!

Homework Club Meeting:
Only one parent attended. Tabled for later at our general meeting October 4th.
