FOR/HA MEETING RECAP

Recap of FORHA meeting 1/30/18

(not minutes)

 Financials: on budget. Possible surplus

Annual Giving down

Texas Hold'Em Event did great! $5000 net

Need to sort out access and transparency of Square store on website with FOR

Need to try to sell chocolates at $1 each to recover cost. Expire in March.

Discussed various field trips.

Humanities Academy is running Reedchella at spring fair (update 1/31: Spring Fair/Reedchella not happening as per email from Karen Shoemaker)

Teachers expressed deep gratitude for the strong support of Humanities families during strike.

Funding of 10 graphing calculators as per Ms. Szymanski's request (roughly $850 total). The board approved the expense, and the discussion led to the suggestion that perhaps parents would be more inclined to donate towards AG if they knew exactly what their money is used for. (something along the lines of "Adopt a calculator".   

Going forward, encouraging current 5th, 6th and 7th grade parents to run for office (FOR/HA Board)

Possibly another Laser Tag? More restaurant fundraisers.

Trying to strike a balance between supporting Friends of Reed/other SLCs and maintaining the autonomy of the Humanities Academy. Any input and ideas are welcome.
