Parent Council Board Meeting Minutes
August 16, 2011
6:30 p.m. at Dunn Brothers

Present:
Chair Elizabeth Hawley, Secretary Lisa Hondros, Leadership Officer Holly Hatch-Surisook and Parent Liaison Sidney Orchard 

Item 1: Proposed Budget 2011-2012
Reviewed actual income from last year and adjusted projections accordingly. We reduced expected income by $1300 (lowering expectations for the Annual Fund and the Scholastic Book Fair). Lower cash income from the book fair reflects increased amount of profits we took in books.

Item 2: Meeting Schedule
Discussed some kind of combination with Leadership, possibly by having some joint meetings. Board would meet independently to complete PC business; PC could sponsor parent education events throughout the year. Elizabeth has been looking into possible guest speakers. We don’t yet know when Leadership will be meeting, but to make joint meetings with PC successful, the meeting would need to begin no earlier than 5:00. Tuesday preferred day of the week by those present. 

Adjourned 8:00pm
Respectfully submitted, Lisa Hondros (secretary)
