Community Meeting Minutes 11/26/2018

In attendance: Kayla Moncur, Tiffany Reeves, Gail Heden, Megan Lindley, Michelle Skaarup, Lindsey Wentzel (Peter Piper rep)


Peter Piper presentation: Lindsey came to learn about us and figure out how we can work with them in a way that works best with our curriculum and goals. Family Fun Nights are their standard offering - food, games, contests, scheduled activities. They also do classroom pizza parties - class with highest attendance at Family Fun Night wins a classroom pizza party. They provide marketing materials- flyers, posters, stickers, banner. PTO runs host table to track kids coming in. 15% if under $2500 revenue, 20% above $2500. Lead time is flexible. Tuesdays or Thursdays are ideal. Themed nights- February is “love our school”, March is Cat in the Hat, “Rock the Test” around April tasting, yearbook parties. Also available: incentive awards (meet with teachers, offer incentives, discounted pizza). Faculty Feast is $4.99/person- 2 pieces of pizza, breadstick, salad, cinnamon crunch. STEM based field trip - $8.99/student- gets 3 STEM activities including making a pizza. Program was developed by UofA. “Behind the Slice” tours can be used as rewards ($4.99/person). They have fun interactive stuff for a booth- wheel, pizza sales, etc. They can also be a resource for families/teachers experiencing extreme hardship (cancer, fire, etc.).
