PTK Board Nominations were made as elections will be held in the May meeting.  Cindy was nominated for PTK president, Julie was nominated for vice-president, Barbara was nominated as co vice-president, Jessie was nominated for secretary.

Bev presented the treasury report for March.  We have a surplus because of grants and donations that were received this year.  Next year the grants would need to switch as none of these grants were reoccurring. 
Kim gave the Principal’s Address- PAARC is going well.  There will be a trip to Fort Marcy after the testing is done.  The tests were kicked off with a pep rally and kids do seem excited.

She is working on the year end going away party.  There are 2 retirements and 3 staff members leaving.  She is working on hiring the best staff.

The PTK spoke about moving to a meeting on the 2nd Wednesdays of the month.  No objections were given so we will try a test day next year.
