Great meeting tonight! It was good to have everyone join us, especially John from Alaska Focus with treats!! It is hard to believe the year is almost up. There are lots of events coming up and opportunities to volunteer!
With that being said, for some reason the upcoming events widget is not linking correctly. To see the actual upcoming events, click on calendar above. From there, you can click on the whole calendar. I am unsure why it is making up events that are not documented on our calendar? Thank you for drawing it to my attention that this was incorrect…..
Also take a look at the volunteer tab, with those opportunities to help!
It was also brought to my attention, that many parents don’t know where the money that PTA raises actually goes. Please take a look at the tab – About/budget. On that page, you will see that PTA pays for most of the extracurricular activities your student has available. For example, buses for field trips, fall carnival, field day, end of the year BBQ, an allowance for each full and part time teacher, Science Night, all Battle of the Book sets and prizes, Spelling Bee fees and prizes, Geography bee and prizes, LEGO robotics, all Seal reader awards, all ice cream, hot chocolate, popcorn class parties awarded by our principal, Movie Night popcorn, water and licensure etc……. Your fundraising time and efforts go to supplement your students education.
We appreciate our staff, families and students for all their help this year. It has been a great year and we have really “lived with-in our means” with the budget! Way to go TEAM PTA
