For those new to FOSB thanks for coming. FOSB arose from the formation of Salmon Bay K-8. The existing PTA (middle school) and PTO (elementary school) joined as a PTO. Our bylaws, budget, and minutes are on the website (https://www.friendsofsalmonbay.org). FOSB is here to support the school and community. If you’d like to get more involved please consider being a Board member. Come see a co-chair after the meeting if you’re interested.

- Keep the Maestroweb site “on” year round. The additional cost is $374+tax ($698 vs $1068) . This would allow FOSB to use the Maestroweb for donations year round and could also be used to collect balances post auction for parties. In the future the auction committee may consider selling silent items and parties online before the auction. This would reduce the auction night accounting burden and may increase amount obtained for items. The cost for running online auctions is $500.
