PTO Board Quick Update Thursday Feb 4

We are getting excited for the second annual Merriam FUN RUN, taking place on May 27th and 28th. 

Leading up to the big day, you’ll notice some “running inspired” presentations during All School Meetings!  This will be a school-wide fundraiser, as well as a great way to inject some extra fitness into their day.  Exercise has many benefits, such as higher energy levels, as  elevated mood and cognitive function.   The kids had a great time in 2019, and we look forward to doing it again!

Please feel free to peruse the Merriam Spiritwear store, so your child can sport some Merriam swag on the day of the run.

The ByLaws committee will be meeting next week as they work hard to finalize the rewrite.  

The team will be moving ahead with the planning for a presentation from an Engineering firm to coincide with our Bridges theme.  A meeting will be held next week, and they will be seeking teacher input as well. It should be a great experience, so stay tuned!

Also, just a reminder of our Open PTO meetings coming up later this Spring on May 4th and June 9th. Hope to see you all there!
