Parent Council Meeting Notes – March 2014


Meeting Notes:
Updates from the Principal:

  • Parking Lot Concerns: It’s been a difficult year in the parking lot. If you park in the lot please pull up as far as you can.  If you are in a hurry or afraid of getting stuck then it would be better to park elsewhere.  Please do not park on the curve at the end of the lot – this blocks others from pulling in to empty spaces in the middle.
  • MCAS will be starting at the Ohrenberger.  Only a few students will be testing at the Beethoven.
  • Ohrenberger now has a Double Dutch team which went to its first competition.

Parents Rock is happening on April 4th from 6:30pm-10:30pm at the Elks Lodge (248 Spring St.) in West Roxbury.

  • This is a great opportunity to socialize with Beethoven and Ohrenberger parents and staff without the kids.
  • Great music and food will be provided.
  • Michele and her committee have gotten enough donations from local businesses to cover the rental of the hall.
  • Bring cash for raffle tickets!!!  OVER 100 RAFFLE PRIZES!!!!!
  • Help is needed to sell raffle tickets. Please email Michele Sarro at michelesarro@yahoo.com if you can sell for 30-60 minutes during the evening.
  • Raffle tickets went home with students to sell for 3 big prizes (1st prize: IPAD, 2nd prize: Kindle, 3rd prize: 2 Red Sox Tickets).
  • Family and friends are welcome to attend.

Movie Night:  We will be showing a really cold, recently released, PG movie (for more details call the school). Thursday April 10 in Beethoven Auditorium for grades K1-2nd grade.  5:30-7:30pm.  Pizza and snacks will be provided.  Volunteers are needed to run the event.  Donations of mini water bottles are also needed. Look for a flyer to come home in students’ folders. Contact Kathleen Hubbard at kathbirch@hotmail.com if you can help.

Book Donations: If you have books at home that you are no longer reading please consider donating them to the school.  We are hoping to collect a supply of books for teachers to choose from to send home with students who need them. Bring donations to the office or drop them in the parent room.
