PTA Minutes and Discussion TopicsMinutes from the Jan. 8 PTA meeting are now available online by clicking here. Key discussion included:

  • Cody School Report Card: Mrs. Brasche shared a presentation showing how Cody is an exceptional school with an acceptable rating. Learn more here and address any questions/concerns to Mrs. Brasche.
  • Variety Show: The PTA members present opted to cancel this year’s Variety Show and make it an every other year event. The thought process behind this goes along with the amount of work and volunteers needed to put this event on. The PTA is looking at moving this event to the High School to alleviate some of the volunteer needs from parents, while still making it a night to remember for students.
  • PTA Spending: There is a district hold on purchasing electronics, which means we can’t buy the iPads we planned with the Fall Frolic profits. The PTA is taking suggestions for what to purchase in its place. We will vote in our February meeting. See the minutes for items already suggested.

Winter Break Reminder: The last day of classes before Winter Break is Friday, December 22nd. Classes will resume on Wednesday, January 3rd. Enjoy your time off, and please remember to stay safe!

Reminders

  • If your student needs to be dismissed early from class for any reason, please send a written note to the attendance secretary on the morning of the appointment. Please include date, time and reason for the dismissal so that your child will have a pass to be excused from class. Texting your child does not count as a note for the office. This is designed to limit the number of phone calls to classrooms, as well as for the accountability of your student. Thank you for your cooperation.
  • When dropping students off in the morning, please pull to the end of the drop off area so the line does not get backed up.  Class starts at 7:34 a.m., so if the student is not in the classroom they are counted tardy.
  • As the weather begins to get colder, keep in mind that the building does not open until 7:00 a.m. Please make sure your students are dressed for the cold if they will be waiting outside in the mornings.
