The morning October SACO meeting was held last week, and was well attended. In October, SACO focuses on identifying potential projects to fund with parent donations, with a special focus on identifying new projects or materials that can be researched and a cost estimate developed for consideration at the November budget adoption. In addition to reaching out to parents and other family members who attend SACO meeting, we also invite teachers and the school administration to contribute ideas.
Each year, SACO has spent $50K+ supporting the school, and this year will be no different. SACO’s budget is comprised almost entirely of donations to the SEED campaign, and Art Walk donations, so while we don’t have a final figure on these two fundraisers, we can make an initial plan, prioritize projects, then fund as much as possible once Art Walk is complete. This year’s SEED goal is $21,000, which would allow SACO to provide $1000 to each classroom.
We will hold the evening October SACO meeting on Thursday, October 6 at 6:00 PM in the MPR. You can check out the meeting agenda here: saco-october-meeting-agenda-9-30-16.
