Mr. Snyder reported that they recently held the “Living the Irish Way” award ceremony. They celebrated by grade level. Each student received a thank you from the teacher that nominated them.
Treasurer’s Report – Ginger Kockentiet and Asch Mikhail
Current balances for PTO Checking and Savings were shared with the group. We currently have $7,618.16 in checking and $26,433.30 in savings. We target to maintain one years expenses in reserve in preparation for years when we might not raise as much money. First time since 2013 that we had to pull from savings to cover current expenses. We withdrew $5,000.
Recent expenses include $1,000 for Academic Signs. We sell signs for $15 and we make $5 on each sign sold. We completed our donations of $750 to Eversole Run Middle School PTO and $250 to Hopewell Elementary PTO. These funds help establish PTO as our newest schools. These donations were approved at our February 2021 general membership meeting.
Upcoming expenses will include funding Irish Way Scholarships, Staff Appreciation in May and 8th Grade Irish Way Celebration.
Spirit wear sale was extended two weeks to allow more time for orders to be placed. Our vendor is now producing the items and looking to deliver items or make available for pick up by the end of next week.
