We had a great kickoff to the PTA year. The meeting started promptly at 7pm in the cafeteria with nearly 50 people in attendance. Thanks to everyone who came out and provided input and feedback to our budget. The Executive Team of Billy Anderson, Mya Lwin, Denyse Cognetta, and Cassie Takiedden appreciate you coming out. For those of you who could not make it, a quick synopsis follows.

We reviewed and approved the 2011‐2012 budget. Our projected income as of 9/21/11 is $21,650. Our projected expenses as of 9/21/11 are $32,330. This shortfall can be eliminated if more of our families join PTA. At this time, out of the 536 families at Lees Corner, less than 125 families have joined PTA. Without your financial support, we may have to cut back on some the programming in cultural arts and field trips. Please consider joining as a family and submit your PTA form and a check payable to Lees Corner PTA.

Another great way to support the school is to register your grocery loyalty cards for Giant , Bloom , and Harris Teeter . Remember, you must re‐register each of your cards every year in order for Lees Corner to receive this benefit. Last year 182 families registered their cards and Lees Corner earned over $4,400. Think of how much we could raise if we all registered our cards. If you’re having trouble registering your card, please see a manager at any one of these stores and they will be happy to help you.

We also reviewed the PTA Calendar of Events. At this time here are some key dates for you to know: This past Sunday we had our first Lees Corner Dining Day at the Franklin Farm Subway. Mr. D’Amato and Mrs. Mohr were on hand at lunch time with their families. It was great to see so many families come out and support Lees Corner PTA. Fifteen percent of sales associated with the Lees Corner coupon will go to the PTA. Our next Dining Day will be at Sweet Frog on October 13. We look forward to a long line at Sweet Frog that night.

We are booked for the afternoon of October 12 for two 40 minute assemblies, one for K‐3 and the other for 4‐6, called the Power of One. The Power of One is anti‐bullying program with the message that every child has the power of one: the power to report and deal with bullying when they see it. We’ll be holding a similar event for parents. Stay tuned for dates and times.

Also in October, we’ll have our first family fun night – Hallowingo on October 28 from 7‐9:30. We’ll play Bingo and other games and there will be a DJ in the gym. Look for ticket order forms in an upcoming Wednesday folder. Pick a volunteer opportunity.

Finally, at the end of October we’ll hold our annual Clothing Drive. Please consider donating winter weather appropriate clothing.

Mr. D’Amato spoke about the changes he’s making at Lees Corner, including the new format for the Open House, Back To School Nights, grounds beautification, the new noise sensitive cafeteria stop light and the eight new cafeteria tables that have been ordered. In addition, Mr. D’Amato explained some of the changes coming with mandatory test taking on netbooks. We’ll talk about more of this at the October 4 meeting

Finally, we remind you that we are currently working on the directory. If you do not want your name or personal information included in the Directory, please submit the Opt Out form by September 30, 2011. Thank you for your support of Lees Corner PTA.

The next PTA meeting will be October 4 at 7pm in the cafeteria where our agenda topics will be: Treasurer’s Report Book Fair Online Testing/Netbooks/Technology Principal’s Report Teacher’s Report PTA President Report Hope to see you there!
