-Annual Fund Drive: A reminder needs to be sent that we are continuing to accept contributions through our dag site.
-Amazon and Fairway contributions have been coming in steadily. Keep shopping as a percentage of your purchases are given to our school. We need to inquire how to set-up a similar arrangement with Target.
-It would be helpful in our fundraising efforts to identify tangible projects such as murals or garden improvement that we need to raise money for in order to make the new school feel like CPE2. Parents could offer their ideas via the Suggestion Box.
-Gift for Rob after his surgery: It was discussed that it would be a nice gesture to raise funds to purchase a gift card from Fresh Direct, Pea Pod , or a meal delivery service while Rob recuperates in April. Ask Yhane if she could assist in sending a school-wide email to parents.
Theresa and Yhane are in charge of packing/moving. Teachers are in the process of identifying items that they want to keep and those that they will discard. Items that are worth recycling will be made available as giveaways at the Spring fair. Volunteers will be needed.
