Happy to bake & help

01:17:27
happy to bake, likely sell (depending on day) but no capacity to lead unfortunately...
charlotte
01:17:41
Happy to help!
Madelaine Hamilton
01:17:42
so is it a weekend day and people buy pumpkins and a bake sale? for those of us that haven't been around before when it happened?
Alex Andrews
01:17:49
Do we have a (rough) date for the 🎃 patch event?
Karen Simpson

Love the pumpkin patch -- happy to assist (not lead)
Rosalyn Wise

Happy to bake and be available on the morning to sell

Christine
01:21:07
Yes, Halloween is Mon, Oct 31st
Dara
01:21:34
is there an options to do this on a Saturday this year? might boost the community feel as some parents may not be able to join in on weekdays.
Emma Fox
01:22:11
I'm in for a weekend too
Mayah Cole
01:22:23
Weekend is best
Jennifer
01:22:27
Also prefer weekend
Alex Andrews
01:22:32
Weekend could be a lot of fun
Renatto
01:22:35
Saturday works
Kristen Currie
01:22:48
can we access the school to get tables etc. on the weekend?
Karen Simpson
01:22:51
Will people show up just to get pumpkins? The benefit of before school is that you have a captive audience.
Dara
01:23:07
doesn't have to be a morning thing
Christine
01:23:15
Plus, you benefit from the daycare as well if it's during the week
Shannon Butcher
01:23:24
It is a smaller event if it is morning
Shannon Butcher
01:23:37
On a weejdat
Shannon Butcher
01:23:42
Weekday
Rosalyn Wise
01:24:25
Morning might be easier to predict turn-out
Mayah Cole
01:24:26
If weekend I can volunteer
Tanya
01:24:37
Weekends can be hard for parents who have their kids in programs
Lydia Bracht she/her
01:24:50
How about after school?
Karen Simpson
01:25:08
Agree with Shannon. In the past, pumpkin/bake sale happened to catch the daycare/before care crowd and pumpkins could be left until end of day.
Alistair V
01:25:31
Agreed, at drop off in the morning is great.
Karen Simpson
01:25:58
I say start small... it's the first in person fundraising event in years. Keep it familiar.
charlotte
01:26:03
Agree with Shannon as well
Kristen Currie
01:26:14
I like the OG (before school) approach, I think it would be a lot more work to doing it on the weekend without a lot of time to plan
Tanya
01:26:14
I think also we could have other events during the year tha are better suited to whole community events
Susan
01:26:21
agreed with Karen Simpson
Jenn
01:29:13
Could we have more information about how much money was raised previously. How many kids participated?
Jenn
01:29:37
Sorry!
Kris Payne
01:30:15

Jen Wilkinson
01:32:58
WOW
Shannon Butcher
01:41:38
Will we continue to meet over Zoom?
Dmitri
01:43:13
zoom 100%
kate
01:43:30
I would have a very hard time coming in person, sadly. Maybe 1 per quarter a year in person would help with community?
Susan
01:43:38
If it is held in person, can it be broadcasted over zoom?
Dara
01:43:41
I second zoom
Tanya
01:43:42
Is it possible to do a combined? We were trying to work that out before the pandemic happened
Zsofi S-R
01:43:51
Zoom
Alex Andrews
01:43:52
Is it possible to alternate?
Alistair V
01:43:54
Zoom preferred
Keith Gould
01:43:55
Jo Anne has a meeting webcam to donate if hybrid is something you want to consider
Madelaine Hamilton
01:43:57
zoom
Rosalyn Wise
01:44:01
Is there a hybrid option? alternating months... I can definitely see the benefit of both
Kristen Currie
01:44:04
Zoom is much easier for me but I wonder if hybrid is an option either hybrid meeting or doing in person once a quarter
Matt Everson
01:44:07
Are we open to hybrid?
Jen Wilkinson
01:44:16
What about one meeting in person and then next online?
Madelaine Hamilton
01:44:18
maybe in person/hybrid once a quarter
kate
01:44:23
I also like a hybrid model. I miss community but also know my reality = zoom
Karen Simpson
01:44:33
Love the idea of occasionally in person, otherwise Zoom.
kate
01:44:35
Once per quarter in person?
Matt Everson
01:44:41
I like the once a quarter
Cleo
01:44:48
Yes like the idea of having a few in person but zoom is very accessible
Jen Wilkinson
01:44:48
really hard to do both at the same time. Hard for online to hear the conversation
Emma Fox
01:44:51
zoomie zoomie zoom
Kenton Vaughan
01:45:26
zoom
Sherry Lin (she/her)
01:45:26
zoom but I like the idea of in person a couple times a year
Jen Haynes
01:45:36
Zoom
Susan
01:45:40
In all our talk of equity and accessibility at the school, I think there needs to be an online options for those who cannot make in person.
Matt Everson
01:45:54
Agreed
Alex Andrews
01:46:10
In-person each quarter/season could be good.
Sherry Lin (she/her)
01:47:03
It may require a bit more facilitation in order to create equitable conversations
Jade & Derwin
01:47:03
I think having both options is responsive to individuals preferences
Kristen Currie
01:47:05
no idea re: your question polly but I wonder how many people will actually show up in person if it's hybrid. I
Keith Gould
01:47:13
I do think it creates accessibility for non-9-5 workers
Pablo Olivarez
01:47:30
I think Hybrid will be the future in all the meetings
Shannon Butcher
01:48:03
I think you make a good point Kristen
Dawn
01:49:25
There are many who would not be able to attend if it were in-person - e.g., work schedules, single parenting, health conditions that limit risk-taking re: covid, the need to multi-tasking of bedtime routine, etc.
Matt Everson
01:50:12
Any updates on Lego League
Lydia Bracht she/her
01:50:34
Did we vote on december/march
Susan
01:53:13
Other extra curriculars happen before or after school ie, cross country. so how do we figure out which clubs have equity/accessibility concerns?
VandenBerg, Polly
01:53:35
Vote: Do we want to have meetings in December and March this year?
Shannon Butcher
01:53:48
Yes (if on Zoom)
Burke-Tsakmakas, Aileen
01:53:50
Those clubs are put forward to all students to join
