Kelly Jacimore presented September minutes and they were approved as printed. Quyen Scott went over the budget.  Quyen shared that we will wait closer to the end of the year to decide what we will pay towards the playground. 

Committees:
Membership:  November is the pie throwing incentive award month.

Patriot of the Month: Jennifer Atchley is emailing teachers for their students and will hand out their t-shirts at Wake of Woods. Patriot of the Month for the month of November will be on the 24 due to the holiday break.

Fall Fundraiser:  Cookie dough total sales were $34,000 and we profited $14,000.  Cookie dough will be distributed Wednesday, October 14 from 1:30-6:00 in the cafeteria. We need volunteers for cookie dough pick up.

Hospitality:  PTA will provide a dinner for staff during conference week on Thursday, October 22 from 3:30-6:00. Food will be catered by Arts BBQ.

Trunk or Treat: Fliers will be sent home to change the date from October 23 to October 30 due to a school district conflict. Penney Davis shared that Armstrong Bank will dress up and pass out water bottles and chips during the event.
