PGA general membership meeting recap
5/13/2016
The final Parents and Guardians Association general membership meeting of the year was held on Tuesday, May 3. We heard from school administrators and the 2015-2016 PGA leadership team. Of special interest was the announcement of the PGA’s initiative to start affinity groups in the fall and our amazing fundraising (mentioned above) which will allow the PGA to make a special donation to the Lakeside arts initiative. For more information about the arts initiative and other information presented, see the PGA webpage where draft minutes of this meeting will be posted soon.
 


PGA team for 2016-2017
5/13/2016
The proposed PGA board roster for 2016-2017, as presented by the nominations committee, was approved at the May 3 general membership meeting. An unprecedented 150+ people self-nominated in our survey sent out in January. Thank you! In filling the 100 board positions, the nominations committee did its very best to balance the goal of keeping some parents and guardians on the board for continuity, and bringing in new people. Remember, there are still LOTS of ways to volunteer for Lakeside and the PGA: APPLE, potlucks, peer groups, logowear, ROAR, Rummage, and more! 
 
 


Rummage numbers
5/13/2016
Attention Rummage volunteers, donors, and shoppers, the numbers are in for this year’s sales.  Between our big one-day Rummage Sale, Depot sales, the growing online sales, and our consignments, the year-round Rummage effort has brought in over $118,000 in gross sales. Just over $72,000 (gross) came from the friends & family preview and the main Rummage Sale. Rummage profits continue to support Lakeside PGA programs and Lakeside classrooms and teachers. Thank you! We never could have done it without this year's 405 Sale volunteers and numerous dedicated Depot volunteers.
