DES PTC Meeting Notes

Monday, April 2, 2018


         The DES PTC promotes family and staff involvement to enrich the education of our children.  We are not a fundraising group.  We collect funds through Box Tops, milk caps, and Scrip gift cards.  We hold many activities throughout the year such as movie nights, barn dance, Bingo, and an auction.


Upcoming Events:

·        Movie Night -  "Ferdinand"

o   April 6, 2018, from 6:30-8:30

o   Michelle Melssen will ask Tom to send out an Infinite Campus reminder message on April 4, 2018.

o   Mineral Point Dentistry donated bottled water and pre-packaged snacks for this event.  Thanks Jessica Hildreth and Mandie Dillenburg.

o   Michelle Melssen will email Julie Olson to remind her to get the popcorn and juice.

o   Set up will be 5:30 p.m. on Friday for those of us that can make it.

§  Staff Luncheon - Chris James will check with the office to see if May 9th or May 16th would work better and a location to hold the luncheon

o   Sarah Godfrey has submitted three Box Tops submissions.  One in December for $278.70, one in January for $181.10, and one in February for $136.40.  Our check in April will be for $596.20.

o   Chris James is able to login to our Milk Moola account with our old login and password.  We will leave as is for now.

o   Chris James will be sending in another 3-4 boxes of Milk Moola in the next couple of weeks. 

o   Chris James also mentioned that we received a check from Dean Foods for $447.35.  Chris gave the check to Julie Olson.  Sounds like this is from some other milk caps that were sent in a long time ago and the company was going through some tough times and was not able to process payments.  We are just now getting our payment.
