PTA Meeting Minutes
Lewis PTA held their first meeting on October 5, 2010 and below are some of the things we discussed:
Mr Lauer reports that Lewis now has 397 students- we will be receiving additional staffing support but we don’t know exactly what that will look like yet. He also asked the PTA for up to $2000 to assist the Donors Choose Project that began last spring with the purchase of ART ATTACK curriculum-which is a K-5 art curriculum for all Lewis staff/kids (I’ve heard from at least a few teachers how excited they are about the possibility of getting this). So the PTA voted to give him that money.
Safe Routes to School- Clay Veka (from the Safe Routes to School Program) is looking for Walk & Bike Coordinator for Lewis as no one has yet stepped up to led this yet this year. Today was National Walk & Bike to school day & we had nothing going on.
Julia Hamlin talked about Our Merit Level of Oregon Green School Membership- which we as a school have earned through our sustainability, recycling etc.
She needs volunteers for composting/recycling lunch waste (this is really just a couple of hours a month!)
Some current projects are a tree planting project on Evergreen.

-Run For The Arts will be Wednesday Oct 13th- the more people there to help count laps & cheer kids on the more fun it is for everyone! All money raised goes towards our Artist in Residence. Since we are running in the Fall this year (it has historically been in the Spring) the T shirt will be the same as last years. Please remember (& tell everyone you know) that the T shirt are NOT free they cost $ 4or $5 & that money comes directly out of what is raised.
