Karen Mihina is the “acting Treasurer” currently until Kim Harmon is able to attend. Karen gave a budget update including checking account and savings balances as well as the amount rolled over from 2016-17 school year. Three areas went over the budgeted amounts: PBIS was over $120.00, Teacher Appreciation was over $369.99, and the 8th Grade Promotion (Breakfast) over $520.00.
 
Ms. Lozano attended the meeting and requested $100.00 from her Science Foundation AZ Grant account to attend a 2-day MESA training, which will provide a training kit for a Robotics extension. Following the meeting Karen reviewed the account history and sent an email to the PTSO Board advising there is currently $307.21 in the Science Foundation AZ Grant account. Due to the amount of funds requested for release being less than $200.00, the funds release approval can be done via Executive Committee. Four votes were in favor, with one abstaining, in favor of releasing funds to Ms. Lozano. Karen also made a Funds release Form which she emailed to the Executive Committee.
