  • Teacher Allocations – all have been paid outside of food services.
  • Current cash is at around $22,000, forecast for end of the year if we have the Fun Run end of year cash will be around $22,500.  We will have to hash this out closer to the end of the year depending on if we have the Fun Run or if the kids end up going on scheduled field trips, etc.
  • Cleaned up the DOGS forecast, not a lot will be happening for the rest of the year and they’re sitting at around $5,400 right now and forecasted at $5,300 for the end of year after the sledding event.

-We did get some nice comments in regards to the gift cards that we added to the gift bags.  That was really nice for the group members to be able to read those.  

-It’s been so long since we have been able to get together or do anything for the school.
