Ok people yes you have to pay for a school function, just bc you have a child going doesn't get you in for free.
Ice cream social....you want ice cream you pay.
Fall Fest.....you want to eat you pay.
Family Dance.....emphasis on FAMILY you pay & you get a drink w/your ticket.
These things need to be paid for, PTO/PTA doesn't have money coming out of their ass! How do you think we pay for the DJ? Or the ice cream? Or the things we need to get for Fall Fest?
These things we also try to raise money with, so we need to cover cost & then some.
I really thought ths was common sense, but it isn't so it is plastered on our FB page, our PTO newsletter & our PTO page through the school.
I'm sorry we don't have the funds to let people in for free. I feel like asking people: Well would you rather go back to catalog sales? We didn't have this issue last year but sheesh this year is ridiculous!
Sorry just had to vent.
