New Business: Due to the inability to locate an available venue for the Kick-Off Pot Luck Dinner, the team/parent meeting is scheduled in the Perry cafeteria on Sept. 12, 2011 at 6:30 PM. Cookies and punch will be served. The following activities are planned for the meeting:
• Provide parents with calendar for speech tournaments, booster meetings, and fundraising events.

• Student demonstrations of speech and debate categories.

During tonight’s meeting, we composed a letter to send to the parents, including the above information. The Boosters will buy envelopes and stamps to mail the letters, unless permitted to use the meter at the Board Office—Marsha will check on this. Cassie and students will compile the address list on Aug. 22, and print labels for the envelopes.
