Travis family, I couldn't be any more tickled to share the final results of the PTA Carnival, our fall FUNdraiser. As you know, 80% of Carnival net proceeds are divided equally among staff with instructional responsibilities. I am thrilled to confirm that, based on this year's results - our highest revenue and lowest cost year ever - each member of instructional staff will receive a budget of $707 to spend on supplies for use in the classroom. That’s an increase of 22% over last year's allocation. Since teachers, on average, spend about $600 of their own money for these kinds of items, Travis PTA is over the moon to be able to offer this gift from our community so that teachers can spend less of their own money in a job they put their whole heart into. Teachers, more details will come your way via email this week, so stay tuned. For a full breakdown of income and expenses, plan to attend the next Coffee with the PTA on November 30 at 7:30am. - Jenny Teague, PTA President
