February PATS 2019 Meeting Minutes

Culture Day is Friday, February 15th. Show Simis some post-Valentine’s Day love and volunteer! Melissa Powers is looking for some warm bodies to run tables or simply to help others with their tables. If you know anyone who would like to participate in Culture Day, please contact Melissa Powers: mpowers@madisoned.org

Thanks to all of YOUR generosity, the 1-2 playground will have a new athletic court (woo-hoo). We’re hoping to expand the playground even further with new equipment in phase two (so get your fun-run donations in – www.funrun.com)

Madison Dash to the Bash is around the corner. Saturday, March 9thhttp://madisondashtothebash5k.org/ See you there!

Simis is Soup-er!!! In light of the recent government shut down our neighborhood pantries are cleaned out. Simis is teaming up with St. Mary’s Food Bank to collect food to restock. The specific request is for cans of soup as this can provide a full meal. That said, we’re not turning away any non-perishable food items. Please leave your donations in the large boxes by the front office.

Help be the voice of PATS and remind your teachers that there are teacher grants available for classroom needs. These grants range from cost coverage for teacher continuing education conferences to classroom supplies (books, tables, rugs, etc.) If your student’s teacher has a need, please ask her/him to reach out to PATS for help.

Spring fair is looking for sponsors!!! This is exclusive sponsorship. We have about 2K people attending, so this is a great audience for one’s business. Contact Angel Conway with PATS if you’re interested or send me an email and I’ll pass it along.

Next fair meeting is 2/5/19 @ 9am at Simis or 7pm at Luci’s.

Adult spring social hosted by Dad’s Club is around the corner: 4/13. DJ, food, silent auction…

Next Dad’s Club meeting is 2/12

Next meeting date/time/location: February 20th @ 630PM off campus, preferably at someone’s home. If you want to host, please reach out to Charlotte. That said, location TBD.

And as always, go to www.simispats.com for more information.
