    2. Restate what MSA does (if there are new people in attendance) - Courtney - Fundraisers, P/T Conference Meals, etc.
    3. Watch DOGS - Ramon Reyes - Dads Of Great Students - Bring positive adult role models into the school. Literature tells us that having male adult role models create successful students. We encourage the students male (although females are always welcome also!) role models to come in spend the {whole or half} day. No limit on how many visits in the year. MUST BE IN THE VOLUNTEER SYSTEM. Must call Mr. Reyes ahead of time to let school know when you can come. Watch DOGS stay with their student and follow their schedule. They do not teach, although its highly encouraged that they help any/all students in the classroom.
    4. PBIS Chocolate Bar Sales - Help Needed from MSA - Cassie Gonzales - Need morning volunteers to collect permission slips, collect money, get prizes into teacher boxes and hang paper chocolate bars in the cafeteria (grade level competition to see who can sell the most boxes). In the mornings, MSA will also get orders ready and to classrooms to be taken home at the end of the day. $1bars/$40boxes. Permission slips go out October 12th (no school October 13), pick up chocolate starting Monday, October 16th. The boxes can be checked out 7:20am-8:00am in the library ONLY. November 3rd is the last day to sell chocolate. Each box sold/money returned earns 4 Emoji Dogtags.
