Proposed Budget Change for General Meeting Vote

Our annual flower sale fundraiser has been canceled this year due to the fact that the company is no longer available. We are sorry for any inconvenience!

Because of this, we need to vote on a budget change at our general meeting at 6:15pm on Thursday, March 28. The changes to the budget would be as follows:

  • Income Line item for Flowers Fundraiser: Currently $2500, would change to $0
  • Expense Line item for Flowers Fundraiser: Currently $1800, would change to $0.
    This is a $700 loss of income, which we feel we can get from the In and Out Burger food truck at the spring picnic. So, the following change to the budget would take care of that.
  • Income Line item for Spring Fundraiser: Currently $0, would change to $700.

Spirit Wear Available For A Limited Time!

Spirit wear is back for a limited time!

We have our classic 18-19 design along with our Field Day/Field Trip shirts available!

Orders must be placed by April 12th.

 

Please Note: Starting THIS year, PTA has already purchased and delivered to the teachers sets of shirts to be used by students for school events (field trips, field day, etc). Those shirts will stay AT SCHOOL (and be washed, of course) for future events/students. If your child wants to purchase a duplicate grade level shirt to keep at home, this is your chance! Also, visit the spirit wear store if you would like an adult field day shirt of your own!


Spirit wear will be delivered to your student and sent home in their backpack. Please note that the PTA cannot offer refunds on spirit wear as all purchases are made through a 3rd party vendor.

 

The spirit wear store is available at https://www.spiritworx.com/store/7376/.
