She discussed the many committees and asked if anyone is interested to sign up after the meeting.  She went over the cost of the PTA and the membership bundle that we are offering this year.

Albany aver brings in assemblies and the money we (the PTA) raise goes towards it. We have PTA meetings 1st Tuesday of every month and Mr. Valentine and Mrs. LoRusso speak along with guest speakers. We also cover meetings over Facebook live.

Deb discussed the meetings that the executive committee and executive board had before school started in order to prepare for the year.  Our current VP of arts and Ed stepped down and Joy Kropp has stepped in to assume the role and she was voted in by the executive committee.

Melissa Smith, 1st VP spoke about activities that occurred the first week of school including teacher breakfast, the welcome back sign, smooth start, and boo hoo breakfast.  Class of 2032 t-shirts were handed out and if anyone did not receive they will be sent to the child’s classroom.

Deb asked for minutes to be approved from the May meeting.  Motion was made by Melissa Smith and approved by Carmella Vetere.   Audit committee met in July to audit the books from 2/1 thru 6/30.  Our ending balanced of $23,906.58 matched at the end of the school year.

Mr. Valentine mentioned a moment of silence for 9/11 tomorrow which we always honor. Mr. Demasi will be playing Taps in honor of it.  We are asking to children to wear red, white, and blue.

He introduced Mrs. LoRusso who is in charge of safety and she spoke about what has been done so far. We started safety drills today. She also went over bus assignments and that they will be done soon.  It takes 2-3 weeks to roll out all of the assignments.

Mr. Valentine asked that everyone be patient as the buses are learning their routes. He went over the new security measures. The district has installed a man trap which is a 2 buzzer system in every school. You will only get buzzed in once to drop off stuff.  If you have a meeting you will get buzzed in a second time.  He mentioned that Mrs. LoRusso is doing age appropriate drills with the children.  We will have 2 security officers on staff this year.
