Castro Valley Music Parents’ Society Minutes
Approved minutes: Beth Watson presented the September minutes for approval.
Welcome and Introductions: Kathy Kelley, Michelle Uchiyama, Beth Watson, Carina Zamora, Helen Wu, Emilie Nepveux, Bob Shedd, Steve Hendee
Treasurer’s Report: We voted to renew the MPS membership with Parent Boosters USA. Helen Wu reported on the financials for MPS through October 7, 2017:
Helen will be out of town Oct. 14-22 and Nov. 12-18, so please contact her before or after these dates if needed.
Membership Notes: There were 63 new Diamond memberships in September, which makes of total of 232 so far for the Disneyland pass raffle. The raffle will take place during the next MPS meeting in November. People have until Oct. 31 to join at the Diamond level ($100) to qualify for the raffle.
Awards/Scholarships: MPS received three thank-you notes from previous years’ scholarship winners: Rebecca Marshall, Sam Troxell, and Lotan Yeung. Lotan has submitted all of his paperwork to qualify for the Bob Shedd Music Major’s Scholarship, and so he will be receiving his $1000 check from MPS this month.
Spaghetti Feed: The general consensus is to keep the Spaghetti Feed very similar to how it was run last year. Kathy will be checking with Jean Marie soon to make sure the paperwork gets submitted to reserve Canyon Middle school for the event. We will look into possibly selling tickets through Pay Pal or Brown Paper Tickets this year, since Eventbright, although convenient, was very expensive last year.
New Business: We discussed the confusion regarding where mail for MPS is being sent. We agreed to change all MPS addresses to Canyon Middle School.
Meeting adjourned at 7:39pm.
Next meeting date: Nov. 8, 2017
Minutes respectfully submitted by Beth Watson
