PFC Meeting tomorrow, 12/10 Vote on Vocal Music Staffing
Mon, Dec 9 4:51pm

Hi Walnut Acres Families, 

We will hold a PFC Meeting tomorrow, December 10th from 7-8pm in the Walnut Acres Library.

View the agenda. Attached are the meeting minutes from the November 19th meeting. Review, and we will vote to  approve these minutes at the meeting.

We will share important updates from Principal Luong, our current event committee chairs, and our PFC Teacher Representatives. 

We will also vote whether to amend our budget to pay for a co-director for our grade level performances.  The vote is to approve an additional $1,477 for our vocal music program staffing. Vocal Music is run by drama teacher Judy Ryken.  For the past 5 years, the instructional assistant for the program was a retired drama teacher, Sam Marin. Ms. Marin retired last year, and her replacement is a qualified instructional assistant, but without a drama background. Parents at our November PFC meeting asked if we would consider providing an assistant with a drama background. We are proposing an additional $1,477 to the Vocal Music Assistant line item in our budget to contract with drama teacher Sarah Wilcox to co-direct our 1st-5th grade level performances this year.

Please attend tomorrow night's meeting if you would like to participate in a ballot vote to decide whether to amend the budget for this additional staffing. Note: the majority of our budgeting decisions are made in the spring for the next school year.  However, our bylaws do allow for us to amend the budget with a majority vote of the member families present at a general meeting, if needed. 

We hope you can join us!

Best, 

Brooke Giddings
PFC President
