Budget SY 13/14: No Sale Fundraiser = $16,500; Spring Fling = $0 (This is not added as a line item to the budget as the proceeds could vary significantly); Carnival = $3,200; Scholastic Book Fair = $2,800; Plant Sale = $3,700; Box Tops = $2,000, Barnes & Noble Book Fair = $600
How did we support our school?
We supported many Events including Art Adventure, Biography Brunches, Book Café, the Readathon, Passport Night and a special outing for the School Patrol. Miscellaneous expenses include staff and volunteer appreciation events, scholarships and other activities to promote our school. Classroom stipends include funds available to support each of our teachers and specialists to cover extra costs.
No funds were requested from Hale School administration to cover supplies and expenses for the 12/13 School Year. Past years ranged anywhere from $11,000 - $25,000.
Classroom stipends are budgetted at $8,000 for SY 12/13. Each teacher and specialist receives $200 for reimbursement of expenses in their classroom. $5,000 was earmarked for classroom programs to be funded as the needs arise. These funds could also be used for Weekly Readers which were previously funded through the supplies expense. First in Math funding was approved at $1,500. Accelerated Reader subscription was also approved.
