Budget and Bylaws (Annual approval required)
Fewer fundraisers than unusual, so the budget looks a little different this year. Several are items indicated with a 0.
Looking for more creative ways to fundraise to make up the difference between credits and expenses.
Walkathon may still take place in the spring, but it may look different than in previous years.
At this time, we are not holding assemblies so we have not scheduled our annual visit from CLIMB theater.
Kelli will ask at the next Superintendent meeting if we can repurpose the funds designated for this event.
Spirit Day Shout Outs
A new tradition at school that celebrates the good things that are happening in our building.
Teachers and students nominate others for shout outs
On Fridays, Mrs. Richardson visits classrooms with the Road Runner trophy and celebrates students, classes, and teachers.
Kids put their names in the trophy for a drawing for Whitey’s gift card, or similar prize.
