February Home & School Meeting Minutes
The regular meeting of the St. James home and school Association was called to order at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, February 7 by Diana Flannery.
Stacey Chenoweth, Laurie Nichols, Beth McBride, Diana Flannery, Suzanne Horak and Rachel Berdo were present.
Mrs. McBride reported that we had a great Catholic Schools Week and that the penny wars for the Honor Flight was a very successful fundraiser raising over $800. Students will be informed later this week about who the winning classes were for both penny wars and the door contest. The silly string fight for the winners will take place as part of the greater school assembly on Friday.
Rachel presented a transaction register for all transactions through 2/7/18. It was reported that we have $3292.96 in the scrip checking account, $100 petty cash and inventory assets of $7655.12. In the regular home and school checking account we have $6072.63 and in the home and school savings account we have $6000. Rachel submitted a bill for $52.45 to be reimbursed to her for check stock that was ordered for Home & School and paid for on her credit card. Diana made a motion to approve, Stacey seconded, motion passed. Suzanne made a motion to approve the treasurer report, Diana seconded, motion passed.
The minutes of the January 10, 2018 meeting were read and stood as presented.
Rachel stated that the school is going to begin using scrip for any purchases they have for the lunch program from local vendors. The school board requested that any distributable rebates from these purchases be directed to the self-funded free and reduced program at St. James. Suzanne made a motion that we set up an additional scrip rebate allocation option of the school lunch program. Stacey seconded. Motion passed.
The Big Event
As we no longer need to rent any items for The Big Event from Aero Rental, Rachel showed the group a ticket turner that she has found to purchase to be used at this event. Suzanne made a motion to order the ticket turner and subsequently reimburse Rachel $132.06 for it. Diana seconded. Motion passed.
Rachel reported that the gambling license has been applied for and the ticket design is in progress.
Laurie will report at the next meeting what the fee will be for James Crossroads to perform at this year's Big Event.
On Monday Suzanne, Lori, Stacey and Diana are going to meet with Washington Golf and Country Club to firm up some of the food details.
Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 6:30 PM.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:50 PM.
