2019-20 Accomplishments and how we spent funds

  • To get ready for back to school, we provided updated landscaping, trimming, and mulch ($1,550) for our school. 

  • We updated the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade teacher work areas with furniture, rugs, an ice maker, refrigerators, and artwork.  Teachers utilize these spaces for breaks, lunch, and planning periods.  

  • Provided funds for scholarship to the 8th grade Washington, DC trip.

  • Coordinated the t-shirt sales for the "pink out game" with TW Hunter with all proceeds going to the After Breast Cancer (ABC) program at the YMCA. We have donated over $1,800 to this program!

  • Coordinated a school-wide supply drive for teachers in January. Thanks to donations from parents, we provided all teachers with a “goodie bag” containing disinfecting wipes, highlighters, disinfecting spray, dry erase markers, hand sanitizer, tissues, and pens. 
     
  • Supported music programs with support for speaker and lighting purchases for band and choral programs. 
     
  • Coordinated and provided supplies for ELA writing appreciation activity prior to winter break.  

  • Coordinated and funded all teacher appreciation activities including coffee bars, meals, and snacks. Since we couldn’t appreciate our teachers “in person” during Teacher Appreciation Week due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we provided each teacher and teacher assistant with an Amazon gift card.
