At our last PTA meeting on May 1, the PTA approved two wish list requests. The first will provide $1269 to purchase bags of books, which may be checked out of the library by students and teachers for book clubs. Each bag will include 10 copies of the same book as well as discussion topics for book clubs. The PTA also approved $300 to go towards the purchase of an interactive projector (a newer version of the SMARTBoard) for music. The music teachers plan to use other PTA funds that they’ve been allocated from this year’s and next year’s budget to make the $1650 purchase.
There were a number of other technology requests but only $4078 available for wish list purchases. The PTA agreed to consider more funds towards technology along with other budget requests at the next PTA meeting on June 5.
