Send us your ‘wish-list’ requests

It is that time of year when the PTA looks at how well we’ve done for the year and decides whether we have extra funds to grant toward “wish list” requests.  Each year staff members and parents present many ideas to the PTA at the May 1 meeting for consideration.  That is how we built the gaga ball pit, installed the new sound system in the auditorium, and purchased many of the iPads for our students.  If you have any ideas, please send them to Jill Curran at treasurer@jamestownpta.orgby April 20 and attend the May 1 meeting.In the past, the PTA has given most careful consideration to ideas when they have had a detailed cost quote and a champion attending the meeting.  While general ideas are welcome, it is very difficult for the PTA to approve immediate funds without knowing the amount of funds required and without having someone willing to champion the idea.  It is also very useful to have the champion present to answer questions that may be asked about the idea.  Even if you don’t have a wish list request, we welcome you to attend the May 1 meeting to listen to all of the wonderful ideas and vote on them.  The June 5 meeting will also be an exciting one where we will vote on a draft budget for next year
