Caleb Greenwood PTSO Budget and Board Election
Friday, October 9, 2020

Board: Normally, PTSO elections are held in-person at Open House (for Board positions) and Back-to-School night (for the PTSO operating budget). Unfortunately, since those events could not be held in person, the PTSO has shifted to online elections to approve this year’s budget and a slate of board members. Please visit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CalebPTSO to vote. Voting will be open through Wednesday, October 14th.

None of the races for board seats are competitive this year, thus voting will be on the entire slate of officers instead of each position. Since there were no volunteers for the President position, the PTSO board will vote on reappointing the current President for another term at the next PTSO board meeting. 

Budget: The PTSO has worked hard to deliver a budget that reflects the current state our Caleb Greenwood PTSO is in due to distance learning. As you review the 2020-2021 budget and prepare to vote you will notice it is much smaller than previous years. Many sources of revenue will not exist in the same form they have in the past (Jog-a-thon, Read-a-thon, etc…) and therefore are expected to bring in fewer funds. While at the same time there will be fewer expenditures (playground equipment, field trips, etc…) and therefore fewer funds required to support enrichment and activities at Caleb Greenwood. 

The PTSO is happy to say that the current budget is balanced with a slight net revenue. This is great news but it is contingent upon Caleb Greenwood families doing their part to be involved and engaged. The PTSO is doing its best to forecast what the budget will be but adjustments are expected in this ever-changing climate. While school fundraisers will look different this year they will be just as critical as in previous years. We are confident that the Caleb Greenwood community will rise to the challenges that COVID-19 and distance learning has presented and stay strong. Thank you for reviewing the budget and voting!
