Communication Report: Dillon Jarrett
Mr. Jarrett reported that Hawaii was awesome and thanked everyone for their help.
President’s Report/Fundraising: Kellie Norton
Unresolved Issue: there is still confusion regarding the custodian’s bill from Pep in the Step. This has to be paid in order to reserve the school for the Father Daughter Dance.
Father Daughter Dance: considering raising the admission price from $18 to $20; it was suggested to get bids from different photographers in an effort to decrease our cost. If we could raise admission price and decrease photographer cost, then we could raise the profit and give a percentage back to the booster club without affecting individual student fundraising. The first student meeting will be Monday, Dec 14, 2015. Students need to be informed of meeting times. This will fulfill A+ requirements for seniors. It was suggested that middle school students could be involved, but approval is required by Mr. Mitchell. It was also mentioned that some color guard members do not realize they can do this type of fundraising, they need to be made aware of this opportunity as well. Mr. Wilson motioned that the boosters approve up to $300 to get started purchasing items for the dance. Kellie Norton seconded. The motion was approved. All questions regarding the dance should be directed to Julie Godsey. Future student meetings will be on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays (10-2).
El Dorado Fundraiser: December 9, 2015 5-7pm. Need parents to help refill drinks and clear tables. Need to remind students tomorrow.
