January 17, 2023 Meeting Minutes

Attendees: Julia Maki, Libby Dowdall, Allison Webster, Elisa Tomich, Gayle Flavin, Molly Schroeder, Christine Novalis, Danica Johnson

This will be a semester of transition as we work to bring new parents into the group and assess how to reframe the group’s name and mission in pursuit of additional issues of diversity, inclusion, and equity.


Ideas for spring semester:

  • The Pulse: Getting educational content into The Pulse, for example, information about important cultural holidays.

  • Kindergarten Info Night: Informational table about the group or announcement at Kindergarten Info Night in early February.

  • Trivia Night: Arranging for some sort of group representation at the upcoming Trivia Night … an auction item, food item, a table, or a brief announcement about the group.

  • EyeSeeMe Book Fair: The group would like to host another book fair in conjunction with the spring parent-teacher conferences on Feb. 27 and March 1. Elisa will reach out to EyeSeeMe to secure the dates. Julia and Libby will consult with Dr. Peterson about the best way for teachers to be able to shop the book fair this year. The group would like to do informational bookmarks to give out with each sale at the book fair.

  • April activity: Either a service activity (ask Dr. Peterson about needs at the school) for families or a park meetup with donuts. It’s important for this to be a really easy activity for families to participate in.
