September Board Notes
On behalf of the Board, welcome to new and returning students, families and teachers!
I would like to welcome, and thank, our new Board members Eric Rasmussen, Lindsie Bailey, and Todd Olson (Vice Treasurer). Welcome back and thank you to our returning Directors Caitlin Blood (Secretary), Jacqueline Fassett, Jeff Demand (Vice Chair), and Karen Foreman (Treasurer). We look forward to seeing you at Board meetings and work sessions.
We had a busy summer preparing for our charter renewal process, which begins in January 2018. Our first order of business was to establish and implement new Board policies. Check them out at http://mcs.k12.or.us/board-of-directors--policies.html. We formalized our relationship with the PSO and have set in place ways to make sure that we are communicating with each other regularly. Congratulations and thank you to the new PSO officers!
Our 2017-18 priorities are:
Our fundraising activities will include a poinsettia sale, a Giving Tuesday appeal, and an event at Top Golf. While MITCH families will be welcome to participate in these activities, the Directors will be tapping into our own networks for our fundraising efforts. The Board, the PSO and Melissa recognize that your annual contribution is first priority followed by PSO fundraisers, such as the upcoming MITCH Marathon.
With our infrastructure firmly in place, we will be turning our attention to establishing broader and more strategic Board goals and facilities planning.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Uniforms required. If it's a PE day for your student, he or she can wear a polo instead of the PE t-shirt. PE shorts or sweats are still required.

In addition to your teachers and students actively engaged in learning, your PSO and Board of Directors are hard at work behind the scenes preparing both community events and fundraising activities. Finally, parents -- your commitment to MITCH is amazing: 640 volunteer hours have been officially logged into the HelpCounter for the school year. While there are many hours which have not been added yet, you are giving more than 100 hours a week to support your children and the school.
