-Treasurer’s Report
• March’s report – March’s pottery fundraiser made $20. Athletic spirit wear is a big portion of the funds right now, but this will go back to ASB next year.

-New Business
• 23 April 2019, District Budget meeting at Brown’s Point Elementary
• Pottery fundraiser wasn’t very profitable, part of the reason for this were the start-up costs, the second one won’t have this. Will evaluate whether to continue this next year based off of second pottery event. Is more of a “PTA sponsored event” rather than a fundraiser.
