Where the money goes?


There are fundraisers, restaurant nights, box top collections, fun runs, etc... Money, money, money. And one of the most important questions is where does the money go?

The PTCO board has meetings scheduled during the school year to discuss the spending of these funds and votes as a general community as to what is purchased.  You are invited to attend those meetings if possible, although we know that isn't always a possibility.  This page on our website will serve as an update location for information regarding where the money is going.  We will use this page to update you on current wish list items from the staff, profits made from activities and general information on where the money is going.
