Parent Advisory

PAC Minutes

May 2, 2022

Meeting opened at 4:05pm with Angie and Allison in attendance.  Minutes were gone over, and we had decided our set-up time for the Science Fair to Wednesday after school, but was miss-typed in minutes.

Game Night recap:  22 games were set around the gym with around 75 parents and students enjoying playing together. Games were chosen throughout the evening from drawing tickets, to be taken home at the end of the time. Families even stayed and helped take down the tables and chairs.  Talked about possibly having it in the cafeteria next year to limit the kids from just running around, and actually sitting and playing the games.

Science Fair:  May 5th 6:00-7:30pm.  Allison has all the tables reserved and how many voting bowls we need, will put the voting tickets in each teacher mail box, and will bring down the tickets for parents/older siblings. Angie will get the bowls, and Katie will put them together. Dane will have a mic for Angie to use. Set up will be Wed. after school so teachers can start bringing their experiments down – or they can set them up Thursday morning. Students and staff can vote Thursday afternoon, and parents that evening.

T-Shirts:  Angie will check into what designs the company has and email them to us. Mrs. Enright sent us an email from an on-line group, but we would rather continue with how we are doing things (maybe on-line as an option).

Put an ad in the paper and send texts out before next meeting to ask for help since Angie will be “retiring”.

Meeting adjourned at 5:00 pm

Next meeting August/September 2022 (tbd at a later date)

PAC Minutes

April 4, 2022

Meeting opened at 4:05pm with Angie, Katie, and Allison in attendance. Minutes from February and March were gone over, all okay.

Teacher Appreciation lunch recap:  Taco’s went over well, plenty of fruits/vegies and desserts. Need to re-stock plates, napkins and plasticware.

Spelling Bee recap:  Sadly, none of our top 4 spellers went to State. Allison gave Deb the list of winners so she can order trophies, and an extra medal for our 3rd grader.

Game Night:  Thursday, April 7th 6-7:30pm – set up at 5:30pm.  Allison called a few parents to come help set up, talked to Robbi about needing chairs, talked to Dane about a mic, and brought games out of storage room. Angie will bring tickets and a few extra games for the game drawings, Katie will help.

Science Fair:  Thursday, May 5th 6-7:30pm.  Angie already sent participation letter to teachers, Allison is waiting for responses so  Katie can make voting bowls - Allison needs to bring down the tickets. Set up gym on Thursday morning (make sure Cameron knows!), students can vote Thursday afternoon, then parents vote that evening. Lori/Sherry will choose the Einstein Award, to be handed out that evening.

Angie would like to go over President duties (as she is “retiring”), and calendar dates for next year at our next meeting.

Meeting adjourned at 4:40pm

Meeting opened at 4:10 pm with Katie and Allison in attendance, and Angie by phone.  Did not have previous minutes to go over.


Spelling Bee:  had over 60 students from 1st-8th grades participate.  Went very well in the highschool auditorium – hopefully have it there again, with a few changes (have spellers wait in gym, go over rules better i.e. apostrophes, upper-case).  Top three 1st-3rd grades; First- Lincoln Townley, Second- Ryland Johnson and Third- Eva Schmuesser. Top three 4th-8th grades; First- William Riddle, Second- Quentin Knapp and Third- Truck Lowrey, with Eva Schmuesser in fourth - are eligible to go to the State Spelling Bee in Rock Springs the weekend of March 18th.  PAC will give $100 towards those who go to State (Deb will get a PO to Central).  Angie talked to State and they will send out a parent letter to the top winners with all the needed information.  Allison checked ribbons, we have plenty, and will get with Deb to order trophies.

Teacher Meal:  Thursday, March 10th – 10:30am-1:30pm

Taco Bar;   Angie bring meat, hard shells and tomatoes, Allison bring beans, sour cream and cheese, Katie bring lettuce, soft shells and salsa, Chrissy bring chips and onions.  Allison has called parents to bring fruits, veggies and desserts, and parents to help set-up and clean-up.

Missing sweatshirts:  Angie was contacted by a parent that they never received the Wolves sweatshirts they ordered.  Angie remembers processing the order and Allison remembers delivering all shirts with no “left-overs”, she has also asked teachers and office with no results.  Hoping the shirts have/will show up, we decided to not do anything at this time unless we are contacted again, and then need to decide what to do- ordering new shirts would not be economical.

Missing Missoula costume:  Angie was contacted that Missoula was missing a Money Changer costume. Allison checked with the student actors, and checked with the highschool – no result.

Game Night:  possibly March 31st, or April 7th.  Allison talked to Mrs. Enright and she decided April 7th would be best.

Science Fair:  Thursday, May 5th 6-7:30 pm

This will also coincide with the Library’s Book Fair (which will run from 4-7:00 pm).

Angie will send out a letter to teachers to remind them to give the number of tables they will need to Allison the week before.  Allison will reserve the gym and tables, check ribbons (we have plenty); set-up will be that Wednesday/Thursday so students can vote during school hours. Three winners:  Einstein Award (chosen by Mrs. Enright/Mrs. Ewing and handed out that evening), Student Choice, Parent Choice.

Meeting ended at 4:45 pm.

Missoula Children’s Theater:  Jan. 31st  – Feb. 5th .  Allison talked to Sharon Bailey and she is willing to house the Actors, and received all the paper work for that. We chose to have 2nd Grade do the “Story” training, and 5th Grade do the “Mime” training classes. Angie talked to Missoula and they are not doing all school assemblies, so we get to choose a third option – Lori and Allison talked about it and decided to ask Deb Harrison at the H.S. to see if she would be interested.  We are still waiting to hear who our Contact Person from Missoula will be to set up the initial meeting with the Actors.  Angie will get the flyers to Allison to print up and hang around school/town, give the parent letter to Deb to send out, get the music to Brock, talk to Nathan Towell at the H.S. asking for a lighting/sound person, get the cash box/cash, and get the press release to the paper (including a ticket for Grace from the Leader). Allison will print off the Programs once the roles are given out, and call parents to help during practices. Allison will give info to Deb to put on facebook and school website. Katie will get snacks for the Saturday show, Allison and Chrissy will run the ticket booth.

Spelling Bee:  February 17th at 6:00 pm, Spellers need to be at school by 5:30 pm.  Angie asked Hulett and Sundance if they want to join and have not had any response, she sent the info to Lori to send out to teachers with the practice words, etc. Teachers need to be done with their classroom “Bee” by Feb. 9th, and give the list of their top 3 winners from each class (7th and 8th top 9 per grade) to Allison by the 11th so name tags can be made. Allison needs to ask and get 4 judges, Angie will ask Leslie if she can be Pronouncer. Allison will get the gym reserved, chairs, tables, mics, pronouncer stool and stand, also check that we have enough ribbons to hand out.

Other Items:

Frozen Food:  Angie will call and see if the back-orders for tea have come in yet

Teacher Trees:   Did not have a huge response, but will do again next year and see how it goes… need to make a few changes;  move trees up front or in the main hall so they are more accessible, maybe not have as many “ornaments” for the teachers, use the larger ornament shapes, let teachers write their own names on ornaments, get the parent letter out sooner, and make sure the kids understand how it works.

Approved Angie to pay Missoula Children’s Theater the $500 down (total cost is $3,100) to secure them for the play, “The King’s New Clothes” which we will have January 31-February 5. Angie already reserved the Highschool auditorium and rooms needed for that week.  Will deal with other needs as time gets closer.

T-Shirts:  Orders are in, Katie will go through to compile and send them in – should receive shirts in two-three weeks.

Frozen Food:  Angie talked to the Rep. and will get the flyers/order forms together to hand out on October 6, to be turned in by October 20th – all orders need to be turned in by Oct. 30th; delivery of food possibly by November 17.

Approved Angie to put an ad in the paper (also the school facebook and email) seeking older teen/adult help in setting up/tearing down the haunted house – she is ready to “retire” from this and others in the community need to step up to help, or there will not be one in the future.

Meeting opened at 4:32pm with new Principals - Mrs. Enright and Mrs. Ewing, Angie, Katie and Allison in attendance. Changing our name was discussed, and we decided to go with ‘Parent Action Committee’ to better express the many activities we are involved with during the school year.

We are keeping our positions the same; with the knowledge that Angie may not help after this year – so she will be “training” the rest of us on her duties.

Went over our parent volunteer sheet; need to change of the word ‘Distribute’ to ‘Sorting’ for Frozen Food. Everything else okay – Angie will give to Deb to print and put in parent packet.

We are keeping the meeting day and times the same as the past:  the first Monday of each month at 4:00pm in the teacher lounge – parents and teachers are encouraged to come to our meetings to offer input/suggestions and to be involved as much as possible! 😊

Meeting opened at 4:15 pm with Angie, Katie and Allison present. Last months minutes were gone over, and approved with the change that the Agenda sheet had the wrong month on it, therefore so did the minutes – the meeting was on March 1st.

Teacher Appreciation meal re-cap:

  • Went well, but less people ate so had quite a lot of “left-overs”; ask parents to bring smaller trays of vegies
  • It seemed more teachers were able to enjoy the meal if it is over their lunch hour, so try that again next year
  • The question came up if there was a way the K-8 conferences could be held on different days than the Highschool


  • Looked at examples for shirt design next year, a few choices were made – make final choice at next meeting


  • Received permission from both Teresa and Steve to use the top shelves in the upstairs storage room to store some of our things (games, Karaoke, etc)
  • Allison bought a ladder, needs to be reimbursed

Other Items:

  • Missoula Children’s Theater; do next year if possible, decide in November
  • Since we are no longer doing box-top winners, Allison was given permission to split all the prizes into “treasure chests” for each pod for teachers to use as rewards, and to ask Alyssa Brown if she is interested in any of the books for the Book Vending Machine – if not, put them with the discard books from the Library to give out at the end of the year
  • It was decided to not do the School Store fund-raiser next year and put any left-over prizes in the treasure chests

  Workshop date will be Wed. 15th from 2:50-3:50 in the gym, grades 1-6

Angie put info in paper, she also gave Allison future ad info and the program sheet to run off.

December 2, 2019

Meeting opened at 4:10 pm with Angie, Katie, Allison and Teresa in attendance. Minutes were read and approved with date change on today’s meeting.

Frozen Food:  all food has been picked up and a P.O. turned in, made around $3,000, it was very nice having an earlier delivery date this year.  Next year need to have specific pick-up times, from 3:30-5:00 pm. Those who ordered MUST pick it up during that time – we cannot store it or deliver it; if unable to pick up, then arrange for someone to do so – if an order is not picked up, it may end up in the teacher’s lounge! Reminder, students walking home should not have to carry their orders as they can be heavy. Make sure highschool is aware of date and times.

Missoula:  Jan 13-18:  Angie will give Brock the music, should be in by the 17th , will check on last year ticket prices and get ad ready for the newspaper . Angie will not be here that week;  need a contact person, someone to meet the actors, need to find home(s), programs made up, cash box and someone to run table for both performances, parents to help.   Teresa needs to choose a date for the all school “class” during that week (preferably Mon or Tue).

Math Night:  Teresa decided the idea of having a math night in the classrooms would be too much – we talked about incorporating some math games in with Game Night again, possibly having a section of the gym for just math games.

Other Items:

                Katie will order more box top prizes, some geared toward the older grades

                Angie has jump ropes to add to the pod ball holders in the spring

Meeting adjourned at 4:55 pm.

Meeting opened at 4:05 pm with Angie and Allison present, visitors; Jesse Hinkhouse and Emily Bishop.

Received a “shout out” sticky note from a staff member stating how grateful they were for the food over parent/teacher conferences, “we couldn’t have done it w/o you!”

Literacy night:  Had around 100 students and parents. Everyone seemed to really enjoy each artist, each one with different information to share. Kids started making/illustrating their own book, but not enough time to complete – each student was able to take home at least two free books, thanks to Title 1 (thanks Michelle!) and PAC.

Halloween night:  Ended up being a snowy night so not as many people – around 218 went through the maze and 226 through the haunted house, made $667, received $550 from community sponsors.  Angie took the left-over candy to the hospital and the Legacy. Next year someone else will need to put up the maze. Possibly make a sign-in/sign-out sheet for those that are helping run games and maze so they are manned at all times. This year half the kids left their posts between 7:00 and 7:30 pm. There were about 6 that were faithfully helping kids with the games the whole evening. Need helpers who want to go through haunted house to do so before their “shift”.

Frozen Food:  Angie turned orders in, made around $3,000.  Delivery on Tuesday Nov. 19th, Angie and Allison will sort, any other help will be appreciated!  Next year ask for more forms, especially for staff to use.

Missoula:  Angie talked to Brock about playing piano again this year and he said yes. She will get him the music as soon as she receives it.  Allison has us signed up, packets were sent home with each student. Teachers sounded excited about the program. There have been a few “glitches”, but the company is quick to help get things sorted out (some of the parent letters had the wrong school name and I.D. # on them, ran out of start-up prizes).

Both Jesse and Emily had great ideas about a different way to have Math Night. Sounds great! They will approach Teresa with their ideas and see if she would like to proceed.

October 7, 2019

Meeting opened at 4:05 pm. Present; Angie, Allison and Mrs. Brown. Last month minutes were read and approved.

Teacher appreciation meal:  Teachers and staff greatly appreciated the meal, parents were very generous in bringing food!  Need to have better communication with Mrs. Brown on times and days (both Jr. High and Elementary) so we can plan meals accordingly.

T-Shirts:  Shirts came in very fast, in time for Homecoming! Angie and Katie put the orders together, and Allison will hand out them out. Made $428.08 in profit.

Literacy Night:  Tuesday October 22nd 6-7:30 pm. Teresa and Dawn Anderson have been instrumental in putting this together! We will have 5 artists here to share their story and talents – at the end of the rotation we will have the students write and illustrate their own mini book. Allison has paper, will ask Dawn for crayons, etc. to draw with (will give writing prompts…’this summer, my favorite,’ etc. and encourage the kids to include the “5 W’s”).

Halloween Treat Street:  October 26th 5-8 pm – Angie talked to adult leaders for helpers and when they should be at the gym (for set-up, games, tear-down). She bought candy (still waiting for funds from donations), has most props, has 13 haunted house workers - the theme is house of horrors wax museum.  Char Delfino will talk to the Chamber members to help with games, Allison will over-see maze, Teresa bring corn hole and toilet games.

Frozen Food:  Hand-outs are here, office will send home this week – turn in by October 24th. Delivery has been changed to Tues. November 19th.

Missoula Children’s Theater:  Jan 13-18th  – Play is Betty Lou & the Country Beast. Need to contact Brock if he can accompany again – music will be here this month. For our free class we will do the whole group assembly – date tbd.

Other Items:

Teresa talked to Jeff about the v-ball net – he worked on the stands and now they are more secure and stay up. She would eventually like to make a permanent place for them.

Allison contacted the representative and visited about the program. It is relatively easy, parents go through the site to order on-line (no phone app) and the school/teacher gets rewards or a percent of the sales. Allison will get things started and be the contact person. Hand outs will be mailed  to us soon to give to students to take home.  Teresa will have Deb put it on the school web-site once everything gets here and handed out.

   Allison to talk to Courtney B. if she is still willing to help with box tops. We will buy treats/gifts for the top winners. Popcorn for other classes that participate.

PAC Meeting

February 5, 2018

Meeting opened at 3:35pm. Members present; Angie Peters, Katie Gray, Allison Ver Burg, and Mrs. Brown.

Minutes from last meeting were read and approved.

Missoula Theater:  Went very well!  Heard good comments from parents who viewed the shows - around 200 people came (total for both shows).  Made a profit of $1,185.00 to put towards the next show.  LuAnn sent the payment check off.  Next time we need to remember to reserve the auditorium from 8am-8pm for the whole week.  If people go to the first show, 2nd show will be half-price.  Try to have the assembly on Monday that it starts to rouse enthusiasm.

Spelling Bee:  Feb. 9 @ 6:30pm. Leslie M. will pronounce; judges are - Angie P., Monte R., Kourtney L., and Thayne G.  Allison typed up the list of spellers (who need to be at school at 6pm), and Angie will make the name tags.  Teresa will get two mics. Custodians will set up on the floor facing the bleachers. Top three students from the first round may advance to the next round.  Top three winners go to State competition, we will donate $100 toward motel/travel.

Swings:  they are up!!  Kids love playing on them, but the handi-cap swing is an issue. Discussed possibility of buying its own stand and moving it over to the kindergarten playground.  Local sawmills donated the wood chips, and will also donate the logs to go around as a border.  Will cost $1,100 to fix the remaining bank of swing frames, no time-frame on that yet.  PAC is willing to order the extra swings.

FFA is going to install a frisbee golf course in the grassy hill northwest of the building.

LuAnn asked if we would be willing to take over the Box Top program.  Agreed.  We will take over starting in March.  Need to contact Trish Massie to make sure she is still willing to help coordinate.  Make sure paper sheets are handed out to students (keep in groups of 50 when sorting), choose a new "prize" for the winning class, and put the popcorn bags down to only classes who participate - not whole school.

Game Night:  March 27th, 6:30pm - 7:30pm.  Angie will get more games.

Katie will check on how much a science guy costs to come do an assembly.

Teacher Appreciation:  March 22 (Thurs. only).  Salad bar -  Angie and Katie both know what to get, Allison will contact parents to bring the rest.

Angie has the glow bracelets we earned from frozen food  - Katie will start to sell them at games when possible.

PAC Minutes

Meeting opened at 3:35 pm.  Those attending; Angie, Katie, Allison, Mrs. Brown.

Minutes were accepted.

Homework help night re-cap:  Only 7-10 parents came, but those that did were appreciative of the advice and help they received from the teachers - so they in turn can help their children better at home.

Teacher Appreciation:  Soups were delicious and very appreciated by the teachers. Parents brought fruit, vegies and desserts to round out the meal. Fridaymorning treats were wonderful (a special thank you to Jackie!).

Treat Street:  very well attended!  All who came had a good time and left with lots of goodies. 204 people went through the maze (which was a big hit - maybe make taller next year, and use a different material to wrap it in), and 261 went through the haunted house. Made $710 to go towards next years event. Angie will look into getting a few more games for the older kids.

Frozen Food: will be delivered at 1:00pm Tuesday the 14th.  School messenger sent out to remind pick-up after school. Total $4,105 (not sure of our take yet).

Spelling Bee fee paid

Missoula Children's Theater:  Jan. 1/21 - 1/27.  Need one or two homes for the theater leaders, must have own bedrooms and personal bathroom.  Ask; Cynthia Clonch, Dale Petersen, Mary Farnsworth, Rosalee Brimmer.  Brock agreed to be accompanist again this year. Need to get a parent sign up sheet for each evening and especially play days.  Find out who provided the snack sacks last year and if they will do it again.

Teresa let us know that the swings will be set in the ground over the next few weeks.  Unfortunately two more bars were bent, so not all of them will be put up -  will cost around $1,000 a piece to fix, so will work on getting replacements next year.  Cannot use the spongy material because it will not drain properly, so decided to use bark with some kind of "curb" to keep it in; Niemens will do the bark (and replace it in 5 years, for mold prevention).

Meeting adjourned at 4:25 pm.

In attendance; Mrs. Brown, Angie, Katie, Stevie and Allison. Last month minutes were gone over and approved. 

Literacy Night recap:  Around 150 students and family members joined us to listen and meet "Hank the Cowdog" author John Erickson.  Night went very well, every one had a good time.  Need to use a different sound system for the book walk next time.  Mary Farnsworth had several parent surveys filled out, and the two top concerns or desire for help is with computer skills and homework skills (especially math). Discussed having a teaching class for parents plus a math night.

Halloween Festival: October 28th.  Angie has  contacted FCCLA, NHS, FFA and Student Councils for help with games and spook house, she will also go to the City council meeting to ask for use of the Community Building on that night.  She is looking into having a maze this year.  Supper will be available for helpers: Angie- chilli, Katie- drink, Allison- dessert.  Allison call parents for desserts for cake walk.

Swings:  The metal for the new legs is in ($175 - Teresa put in a p.o. for this out of our account), needs to be fabricated.  Teresa designated and measured the area in the grass field for the soft-fall material and concrete.  We are hoping there is enough soft-fall material left from Sundance that we do not have to purchase much, if any.  Teresa will talk to contractors about donating time to put in the concrete. 


     T-Shirts:  Parent orders are in and Katie will put the whole order together to send to the company

     Frozen Food:  Sell during Oct. 3-19th, orders will be here on Nov. 14th - will need help to sort and hand out that day.             School reach needs to go out to remind parents to pick them up, cannot store them at the school.
