Updated Budget Ready for Review and Vote

The PTO board met on Oct. 1, 2020 to discuss amendments to the 2020-2021 budget. The original budget approved by the membership allowed us to begin operations for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2020. Now that we have a better idea of how the school year may look and what financial requests are being made, we would like to make a more solid budget.

Current PTO members will be sent an email for voting.
