PAC Meeting Minutes

September 14, 2015
Principal’s Update
  • Tech Night – 97 parents attended and provided positive feedback saying the ‘evening was just what we were hoping for’, ‘good information’, etc.  WMS is exploring hosting another meeting next year. 
  • Construction on the additions to the school will begin in late fall.  Accommodations have been made to reduce distractions and learning disruptions. 
  • Reminder for PE – appropriate attire must be worn and shirts should be plain.  If there are pictures or advertisements, the shirts must be worn inside out.


New Business

Reality Check

  • Date has changed to April 15
  • Contact Mrs. Steege if you are interested in volunteering.


Christmas Luncheon

  • PAC will get favorite Christmas dessert donated for teacher raffle.  Look for the PAC to reach out for volunteer parents to contribute their favorite dessert. Baked goods should be homemade and please share your family tradition about importance of the dessert. 
  • Asking for other donations including wreaths from last year.



  • PAC spent time reviewing budget and allocating funds based on contributions.
  • Decided to send home a newly revised donation request letter to be sent home with report cards.  It will list the names of those who have given with a goal to raise at least another $500.  This will allow the board to carry over $1000 based on current budget.
