There were no comments on or changes to the November meeting minutes.


The Child Center and K-8 Christmas programs are coming up this month on Thursday, Dec. 8 and K-8 on Thursday, Dec. 11. Volunteers are needed to bring cookies, to setup the reception in the main hall and set up the auditorium. Extra wreaths and also Scrip cards will be for sale at the program and a Love Offering will be taken for the teachers.

Note: Some families have not been getting the Eagle News email each week. The new format makes it easier to read on a smartphone but the transition has caused some to not receive it. Sheila is working on resolving this problem.



Korin Sandelin will be sorting wreaths Thursday, Dec. 4. Extra wreaths will be for sale at the Christmas program.

Amanda will be moving forward with planning the Jog-a-thon after the holidays.

The PTF board decided the targeted fundraiser for the Jog-a-thon would be to raise money for the new gym flooring. The board voted to match, dollar for dollar, the funds raised by students up to $5000. Jonathan and Mrs. West discussed the flooring options and encouraged everyone to vote for one of the options.

Fairview would also like to pursue grant funds for new playground equipment and will advertise for a volunteer grant writer.


T-shirt/sweatshirt orders have been turned in and are ordered.



The current bank balance less outstanding expenditures is $11,000.

Whitney reported that the bank balance has typically remained above $5000 so it was proposed that a portion of the PTF balance be donated to the new gym floor fund. The board voted to match, dollar for dollar, the funds raised by students during the Jog-a-thon, up to $5000.


Samuel Sandelin’s proposal for a student council or student representative at PTF is on hold while the teachers discuss with classes if other students are interested in the serving as representatives.



Kevin Tucker was not able to attend this meeting.



The next PTF meeting will be Tuesday, January 6, 2015, starting at 6:30. Pizza and childcare are provided. Everyone is welcome.
