Sumpter Parent Club Meeting January 12, 2016 Minutes


Welcome and introductions:

Present: Brittany Springer, Alicia Matson, Jennifer Koenig, Nicole Francis, Melissa Wellard, Casie Mendez, Shannon Eastin, Chris Cain, Faith Branson, Noriko Shimosaki, Jane Morris, Katie Metzker


Secretary’s Report:

                Faith motions to accept minutes as written, Jennifer seconds the motion, all were in favor.


Treasurer’s Report:

                Accounting sheet passed out for all present to review

                Discussion on Parent Club opening up own bank account

Pros:  Ability to accept Credit Cards as payment at events, quicker reimbursement for funds fronted by parents

Cons:  Fees involved with Credit and Debit transactions, full time work for Parent Club treasurer to account for expenses and write checks for fund requests, treasurer would also be responsible for filing taxes every year.

Casie motions to wait on opening bank account until the Parent Club has a treasurer to be in office long term as this will take a lot of commitment.  Jennifer seconds the motion.  All were in favor.


Fund requests:

Report on progress for fundraising for Outdoor School:  Student Council recently elected and to help with fundraising efforts.  So far school store has raised an estimated $875 that will also go toward funding Outdoor School.  With that, the estimated total raised is somewhere between $6,500 and $7,500.

Jump Rope for Heart

Hi Sumpter Families,

 Jump Rope for Heart season is coming up. People can make donations online but we want to be able to offer the option for donation in person at the school. We are in need of volunteers to help man the donations desk in the front of the library on Mondays and Fridays 9:15-9:30am February 2-26th. If you are able to help us out with this, Please email Shannon Elkins at or respond to this e-mail and I will get you in touch with Shannon.

Thank you for your willingness to help us out!
