    PTG Meeting Minutes

    March 3, 2016

    I. Old Business

    a. Totally 80's Update

    Tickets went on sale last week. Next week they go up an additional $10 per couple.

    Many, many items have been donated. There are currently over 60 baskets created

    and some big ticket silent auction items such as a $1000 scholarship to Vincentian

    and $2000 to North Catholic.

    Over $5000 in sponsorship money has been raised.

    Advertising is in the Hampton News, Local paper, local Facebook pages.

    Marina is going to speak at the next faculty meeting about getting teacher

    involvement during the event.

    $650 was collected from the school families to purchase a large flat screen TV and

    US Open tickets to raffle off.

    The committee is still looking for donated Steelers Tickets for the silent auction. If you

    know of anyone who would be willing to donate a pair of tickets please let Marina


    A suggestion was made that the homeroom who has the most attendance from

    their parents attending the event will win a pizza party.

    b. Mad Science After School Program

    We reached our capacity of 25 students.

    PTG covered $10 of the fee for each of the students.

    The feedback is great and the kids really like it.

    c. Fitness Nights

    Going to do PIYO or Yoga next.

    So far we have made $260 from Fitness Nights.

    d. Amazon Link

    We have raised $166 so far.

    The program we are using (Amazon Rewards) gives our school a pretty high

    percentage back. It is between 6-13%. On some orders we have made over $10.

    Please keep using this and promoting it. Programs like this are really important to our

    budget because Labels for Education and Target Education have ended.

    e. Shoparoo

    We need to keep promoting this. Only about 20 people are currently doing this. This

    is also easy money that will help our budget.
