Site Council

Our site council has reviewed the Single Plan for Student Achievement as well as the Safety Plan and approved both. They will be presented to the school board in January.

Parent Teacher Association

  • The Education Foundation of Cotati Rohnert Park will have its annual event in April. They ask PTA’s to donate a basket for their silent auction. A couple of our volunteers will be putting together a ‘Swing Into Spring’ themed basket if you have anything you’d like to contribute.
  • PTA will be hosting a Safari Encounters assembly for the students in March.
  • We had a long discussion about different ways to spend PTA funds that directly helps students and teachers. Some ideas were alternative seating for students and new library books. We thought about having a book drive would be a good start to stock the library with some new books.
  • There will be another spirit wear sale in January.

If you have any questions or comments don’t hesitate to contact the MVPTA or join us at our next meeting on January 11th at 6:30!
