Pledge of Allegiance

A motion was made by Chris Gardner to approve the agenda and Kimberly Garrard seconded the motion.

Julie Moore read the minutes from the PTSA organizing meeting on December 18, 2019.  The minutes were approved unanimously. 

Kimberly Garrard gave the Treasurer’s report indicating a checking account had been opened at Mountain America Credit Union with the membership dues collected, the $50 donated by Jordan High and another $40 donation.

Some fundraising options were discussed such as a night at Chick-fil-A or Chilis where a percentage of proceeds would benefit the CTA PTSA.  DeeAnn Pratt was asked to follow-up with Chick-fil-A to see what was involved in getting a night set up.

There was a discussion about PTSA Day at the Capitol on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 and also on Tuesday February 18, 2020 from 9 am to 1:00 pm.  Betty Shaw indicated that the Secondary Council will pay for 8 students to attend either day.  The cost is $12 with a box lunch included.  Pamela Hansen expressed concerns of transportation and chaperones.  DeeAnn Pratt indicated she can help on Feb 18th but not on the 12th.  Nathan Edvalson said he could help chaperone on either day.  Kimberly Garrard can also help on either day.  Brooke D’Sousa already has tickets for February 18th.  Nate suggested an email be sent to find out which students would be interested in attending.  Betty Shaw needs information back to her by Feb 5th and the registration form completed.  It was also mentioned that there may be a possibility of joining up with other schools who are arranging buses.

A discussion was then held regarding Parent/Teacher Conferences on February 25-26.  It was determined that dinner arrangements were needed for 15 people on Tuesday Feb 25 at 3:30.  Betty said she would make arrangements to have those dinners donated. Nate informed board members that Parent/Teacher conference time sign-up registration will be coming out soon.

Betty indicated that our PTSA membership number was almost to 30.  We talked about ways we can get more to join including parents, grandparents, neighbors, students, teachers and staff.  It was determined that Nate would send information to parents of CTA students with PTSA membership information and that members of the PTSA board would have information and envelopes available at Parent/Teacher conferences to encourage parents to join. Kimberly Garrard will work on getting a “Square” so membership can be made via credit card. Betty will work on getting an online member hub set up for membership dues.

It was decided that due to a Parent/Teacher conflict on February 27th that the next PTSA Board meeting would be help on Thursday, February 20th at 5:00 pm in the Bell Canyon Meeting Room.

Nate indicated that disclosures will be sent out electronically to parents starting this semester.  Nate will also work on access to the CTA Staff page which indicates there is a code needed for access.

Betty Shaw had another meeting to attend so the meeting was then adjourned.
