President’s Report:
Tracey Hott
gave a recap of the year. Tracey reported that we had a very good year.
We steamlined the calendar and it worked very well. We tried not to overwhelm our
community and had only 4 major fundraising events. The fundraising events were all
very successful. We are very grateful to our community. The calendar will look very
similar next year. Tracey thanked the current board and all the APT volunteers for all
their hard work this year.
Nicole Keniston announced the 2013-2014 Election results. There were 23 yes votes
and 0 no votes. Tracey welcomed the new 2013-2014 board members and presented
each of them with a bouquet of flowers. Tracey thanked all of them for volunteering for
their upcoming positions. Tracey thanked Nicole for putting together the slate. Tracey
asked that if there anyone was interested in volunteering for an open position, to please
talk to Nicole Keniston.
Tracey thanked everyone for coming.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:39 A.M.

On May 7, 2013, Tracey sent an email to the board which proposed a budget of a
maximum of $500 for the A+ celebration. These funds would be for the decorations,
food, and perhaps some type of entertainment at the assembly. She suggested that the
funds be taken from our School Enhancement budget where we have a $3,766.72
balance or from the Board Operations budget where we have a $1,138.60 balance. Jen
Cohen motioned that we budget $500 for the A+ celebration. Funds will either be taken
from the school enhancement budget or the board operation budget, wherever Tracey
and Bridgett decide is best. Michelle Walker seconded the motion. Everyone was in
favor and the motion passed via email on May 7, 2013.
