The P.T.O. Meeting was called to order @ 3:30 p.m.  Members in attendance were Tara Bowers, Sheryl Brunke, Jammie Campbell, Tandra Eames, Melissa Graham, Dawnella Monroe, Donna Pilling, Jessica Romeo, Peggy Shrowder, Mindy Shull, Deb Strang, and Mike Tomlinson, 

It was suggested that the school's Sam's Club business membership card be renewed.  Motion was made, seconded, and passed.

The cakes for Mother's Day will arrive on May 11.  Mr. Tomlinson said he would find a room we could place them in so they could defrost by the 12th.  Publix will show up on May 12 to help decorate. Students will come in groups.  Mrs. Langston and Mr. Tomlinson will decide with the teachers when they want to send the students who have pre-paid.  We will be decorating in the cafeteria; P.T.O. members will be there to help.  Cakes will come pre-iced with flowers.  The kids will add sprinkles and a heart.

Ms. Peggy will contact Smokey Shalace about replacing the wood on the courtyard benches with plastic.  Kennon is also looking into ways to fix the wood.  We had voted to replace the wood months ago but are trying to get it done cheaper or for free.  It was stated unbrellas were wanted for the tables of the courtyard, but were told it was a bad idea.

Ms. Bowers requested $150 for the Running Club.  Motion was made, seconded, and passed.

Ms. Bowers requested $30 for Pie-In-The-Face winners.  Motion was made, seconded, and passed.

Ms. Bowers requested $350 for Water Day.  Motion was made, seconded, and passed.

Ms. Bowers also requested that the items for the Pie-In-The-Face and Water Day be purchased by May 8.  P.T.O. will pick it all up as long as we have the checks to do so.

P.T.O. requested $800 for Teacher Appreciation Week (May 1 - 5, 2017).  Every day a small breakfast and lunch will be provided in the Teachers' Lounge.  Accounting includes $130 for Five Star Pizza, $250 for Sam's Club, Walmart $300, and Dollar Tree $70.  Motion was made, seconded, and passed.  P.T.O. will purchase and set up everything.

Mrs. Pilling asked for P.T.O. to pick up the next set of 6 Walmart gift cards for $25 each for the attendance winners.  We will pick them up and give them to her to pass out in May.

P.T.O. voted to buy the popcorn winners the $50 popcorn basket for the child who sells the most and the $10 bag for the 2nd and 3rd place winners.  It was voted to buy it from Popcornopolis since 60% goes back to the school.  Motion was made, seconded, and passed.

It was suggested to spend $200 on P.T.O. shirts before the end of the year as a present for the people who helped all year.  Motion was made, seconded, and passed.

Mrs. Eames requested $60 for a cake for Pre-K Graduation.  Motion was made, seconded, and passed.

There being no further business to discuss, it was decided the next meeting will be held on May 23, 2017 @ 3:30 PM in the Media Center.  At that time, nominations will be accepted for next year's officers and voting on those nominations will be done.  The meeting was adjourned.

Respectfully submitted,
