March PTA General Meeting minutes

If you were unable to attend the March General Meeting, you can view the meeting minutes here. During the March General Meeting, President Vinay Kadam called the meeting to order and provided a list of PTA accomplishments to date. A Treasurer's Report was given by Kaushik Ashangari and budget amendments were presented to the membership to vote on. Ehireimen Adeyo was also introduced as the Committee Chairwoman of the Nominating Committee for the Liscano PTA Board for the 2022-23 school year. 

Honorary Life Membership Award

Jannie Tong's dedication and commitment to Liscano families is evident in her role as Communications Chair on the current Liscano Elementary PTA Board and as a room parent. She's always willing to lend a hand, and doesn't hesitate to step in to fill any gaps. The nominator said, "Jannie is always willing to help new and present parents with information needed ... She is very helpful with resources and is super friendly", and we could not agree more. Jannie has embodied "outstanding contribution and service toward the well-being and benefit of children and youth", and for that, Jannie was selected for this prestigious award.

March PTA Highlights

A heartfelt thanks to all of our PTA members who have volunteered this past month for numerous events! We would not be able to provide the experiences to our teachers, staff, and students without your support. 

Volunteers at Liscano Fun Run

Thank you to all the parents who volunteered for the Fun Run! Those who came out early to set-up, stayed to re-organize the courses, distribute prizes, hand out water, and clean up post-event!

Supporting Community Family Fair

Liscano Spirit Days & Nights!

Thank you for continuing to support Liscano Spirit Days and Nights at local community restaurants. These school fundraisers strengthen the bonds between schools, families, and the community, all while bringing in essential funds to help supplement the school's budget for things like enrichment programs and hospitality events to support our wonderful teachers, staff and students.

Thank you to the following participating local community partners:

We raised $322.56 at Chick-fil-A last month!
