PHS Cheer Booster Meeting 6-24-19
The heart behind the booster- not just to make money, but to care for and equip the team including coaches
Review- bylaws given out for review. Went over purpose and officer candidates. View bylaws hereQuestion on timing of having elections in February- Would not allow for new team members parents to be elected. Tryouts could be as soon as mid April, but no earlier. Decided to leave elections as they are- anyone elected would be an interim until team results are posted as some may not want to serve on the board if their child was not on the team, although they would be free to do so. Everyone was open to changing timing of elections in the future, but will leave them as they are for now and see how things go.Officer positions are a year long position and carry legal responsibility. Both Kayde and I are big into rule following, so there should be no reason to worry about legal weirdness.We will shoot for booster meetings on the 3rd Monday of month, checking into see if we can always use this roomWill also have monthly officer meeting. Others can call meetings with 7 days notice.All minutes for meetings will be posted on the website. Will email the link with minutes after they are posted.Will plan to audit once a year. Will show what transactions have been posted at meetingsQuestion- checks to be addressed to PHS cheer booster clubQuestion on camp- wrong dates on schoolpay---They are July 12-15

Developing a calendar through August
Booster meetings- 4th monday of the monthCheer bonding- 2nd weekend of the month? Ideas for future bonding events? It is desirable to have the bonding on the same weekend every month, but not likely given coaches schedules in the fall. Courtney can send dates she cannot do. Shooting for team bonding once a month- comp meets could act as bonding since all the girls are together.Family Bonding- In July, the Wellington 4th of July. Does anyone with a pickup truck want to volunteer to drive and have their truck decorated?-Marianne
In August and beyond, we’ll try to pair family bonding with games. Other ideas?
When will comp team tryouts be? After camp, but not sure yet
Deadline is July 8, but school is requesting payments need to be made ASAP. Michele will be in her office from 8-noon this Wednesday, or payments can be made on school pay (be advised school pay has~$15 fee)Girls will need to be at CSU at 7:30 am on Friday the 12th with all their clothes/things. Camp is overnight, and food is providedAdditional details to follow
Fundraising- by next meeting will try to have have a calendar of fundraisers. To be successful, we need everyone to participate in at least one event throughout the year (with painting, 13 girls made $640!).
Potential Summer fundraisers:
Sell brownies at Fuzzy’s- checking on datesCar wash at JC penny’s- checking on permission4th of July parade- sell Otter pops and water along the parade route Booths sold out, other ideas?- glow sticks, coolbeads/dippin dots, drinks- water and soda
Beth could interface with football team to see if shirts could be sold at games. Also talked about selling spirit items such as foam fingers, megaphones, etc.
Garage sales, chocolate bars, subway cards, dominos cards, poinsettas, mini camp, spirit gear at football games, CSU concessions at games, Selling programs at CSU games, Do percent back nights at restaurants after football games, chuck a puck, spaghetti dinner or pancake- partner with 5k? Also sell spirit gear during home coming, Photo booth during homecoming or mr PHS. Sell hotdogs at Jax or car dealerships over labor day weekend
Kayde working on corporate sponsors and grants
Make amazon smile account? Kayde will look into
Mini Cheer camp-
In previous years: One day on a Saturday, learned a cheer or routine, $20 and got a tshirt, 6-8th grade, just 10am-12pm camp
If do during the fall, could send out flyers to elementary and middle schools for marketing, and do the shirts through the school.
In previous years, fall is super busy for the girls, and selling items like cards or tumblers hasn’t been successful. Fundraisers that are a few hours on a Saturday are likely to have more buy in and cause less stress to the team.
Money coming in over the summer will go to nutrition and bonding unless we can have people provide snacks and dinners/host bonding events
Idea-Set deadline for family’s to send non-perishable snacks- protein bars, beef jerky, trail mix, etc. to fill up cheer locker
Can also look into what restaurants might donate food for football games. Could look at scheduling a different restaurant for each game
Kayde will send some letters to protein bars to see if they will sponsor
Future funds from fundraisers will be dived amongst these funds. We are seeking guidance on what appropriate percents are for each fund.
