Tuesday’s meeting included a successful brainstorming session about the PA’s mission, vision, values and goals. Please see the attached minutes for details on that discussion and other news.
The draft mission statement that we came up with is: “To support the mission of SLLIS and the individual schools which comprise it by building a community among the families who have chosen those schools to educate their children.” If you love it (or hate it) or have any other comments on what the PA should be, what it should do, or how it should do it, please provide your feedback to Secretary Amy De La Hunt at firstname.lastname@example.org before the end of next week (Jan. 13). Or you can print out this form, jot down your thoughts, and return it to the PA mailbox in the front office.
The financial report for December is available here. The newly elected treasurer, Megan Hinrichsen, is currently working to provide a more detailed report for the full year, and it will be presented at the February meeting.
Upcoming dates to keep in mind:
- Tuesday, Jan. 10 — Second Tuesday Microbreweries at 7 p.m. Watch for a blog post confirming the location (tentatively Four Hands Brewing just south of Busch Stadium on 8th Street).
- Wednesday, Jan. 11 — Staff Appreciation Lunch. To sign up to bring a dish, contact Lisa Berman at sllisPAteacherappreciation@gmail.com. The teachers LOVE this lunch!! Please show them your support by bringing something yummy!
- Tuesday, Feb. 7 — Next PA meeting at 6 p.m.
Finally, we will soon be posting a link to the YouTube video of Tuesday’s meeting for your viewing enjoyment. Sorry for the delay on that.
