  • Carnival — We were able to get a number of new volunteers to chair committees.  Still need help with week of school sales.  Trying to arrange shuttle parking at Maranatha.  Looking into new games for older kids.  Maybe a Wii dance off –this game would need adult supervision.  Raffle will take place.  Kids will not sell tickets–instead after school sales and at other times.  Will only bring over games we have volunteers to staff.
  • Spirit Wear – No one to present update
  • Book Fair – PTA will help organize this year as Mrs Sietsema’s schedule doesn’t allow her to be at Wyoming for enough days to hold the fair.
