Kelly Kelly

Still awaiting 3 matching checks to come in for phantom fundraiser. 8th grade events are around $2500 and half of that goes towards t shirts. Amount looks less than last year but they started collecting money earlier. School improvement is a little over but keeping that as it is so we can determine better for next year what budget should look like. Peace Poles project is under way. Teacher grants are gaining in popularity and working out well.

8th Grade Events

Julie Bell

Committee has met and has started the process. A little slow on money coming in. Hooray for Hollywood is the theme. Ms. Bradfield may send an email to the 8th grade parents. June 1st is the formal. Still decided on 8th grade legacy. Some items being considered are more technology or fresh coat of paint for the 8th grade hallway.

Food Arc

Cecilia Joyce

Grand Opening was awesome! More than 50 people came, including Roxy Cash, First Lady Kristin Cooper, Wake County Commissioner, and Student Speakers. Thank you to Mr. Bishop for letting us use the space. Our main challenge will be funding because the budget will be double that of back pack buddies. We are told to budget at least 7k. Food Arc Club will possibly partner with a fraternity from St. Augustine College. Ms. Sutton is looking into this. This year we are fully funded. Possibly starting a toiletry drive next week.


Bolt for the Blue

Leslie Howes

Silent Auction starts next Wednesday and ends race day. We had our first drawing and Mr. Misuraca won. 8th grade student also won. Spirit nights have started. Bolt Run Club has started for 3 Wednesdays. We are in need of Street Crossers. Loco Pops will be on hand.


PTA Updates

Leslie Howes

Black Box Theatre Company coming on April 18th. The whole school will get to view performance. Ligon Arts Boosters are in need of help for next year. Please consider helping them. Member Hub will be introduced via newsletter in May. You can join PTA through member hub.


Principal’s Update

Gretta Dula

Ligon is one of 38 schools in the country to be recognized for national Magnet honor so Ms. Dula will miss the Bolt for the Blue. Ligon had to pass through 8 standards but we did it! Please fill out the Wake County Schools survey that is sent out. Very proud of the Arts department and its recent accolades. Prior to 2010 we had allotment for 3 Aps. Del Burns is trying to work with budget and get us more funding.
