Mohave PTO Packets

  • Going out this week

Patty suggested shirts designated for PTO to wear at events

PTO Today Gift bags

  • Packets didn’t get here in time. Patty suggested handing out at band or choir concert, along with a tax credit form. Needs to go to parents only as there are cough medication samples enclosed.

Mr. A

  • Coffee with Chris in September; plans to share data about kids and what Mohave focuses on. Patty asked if we need someone to bring donuts and he said he’s just going to have coffee

  • Mr. A also talked about speaking with Office Steele and having the officers come back to talk to parents

Fundraising Updates

  • Papa John’s dates set for entire school year: 8/31, 11/30, 2/22, 5/3

  • California Pizza Kitchen is locked in for two dates; 10/18, 1/16; Both CPK dates are early release days; thought was, since new manager of CPK will give 20% of sales back all day, we should try to drive both lunch and dinner traffic

  • Scott discussed with the CPK manager hanging a banner at Mohave on the fence by the drop off line, will confirm and see who this needs to be approved by at Mohave prior to hanging it up

  • Harkins movie night; discussed having the movie night in December again; there are two options; Aquaman (12/21 release date) & Spider-Man (12/14 release date)

  • Decided that Spider-Man would be the better (more popular) option and the timing was better

  • Discussed having the movie night on the December early release day (12/12), however this won’t work since the movie doesn’t release until 12/14

  • Scott to work with Harkins on another day; explore Sat or Sun 12/15-16 or Monday 12/17 if the weekend is cost prohibitive

  • Discussed having Mr. Coronado dress up in a Spider-Man costume (Mr. A said he could make it happen!)

  • Discussed having the same mom that works for Disney (that provided the light sabers last year) help with some giveaways for the movie night
