PTA Board Member Meeting Minutes

January 11, 2017


The Bannockburn Elementary School PTA Board met on January 11, 2017 at the Bannockburn Elementary School (BES). PTA Co-President Heather Kraus called the meeting to order at 7:05 p.m.


In attendance: There were 14 board members present.


Meeting Purpose

  • Heather Kraus welcomed the members and explained that the purpose of this meeting was to discuss spending down a surplus of roughly $46,000 in PTA funds at the request of the auditors; the auditors would like the PTA to keep a reserve of $10,000 in surplus funds from year to year and the PTA currently has a reserve of $56,000. She and Ms. Marget Maurer presented a “wish list” of items from some of the teachers and BES principal Kate Bradley.
  • Allison Leotta moved that the Board present a revised list of spending projects based on the wish list totaling only $41,800 to the full PTA at the next meeting for approval. Tanya Sisler seconded the motion. The motion was passed by voice vote, with no objections.


The meeting was adjourned at 8:18 p.m.


Respectfully submitted,
