I am the PTSA Secretary for my daughters school in California. Recently I brought uo to the Board several issues I wanted to address as I felt we have a responsibility to be more aware of the economic times. I felt that $25 for a father-son event (add'l $10 for additional children) was a bit too ...much. I said that by lowering the cost of the event they would sell more tickets to make the same amount of money in the end. I also felt that we should not be cramming this event in at the beginning of the year when parents are hit with so much at the beginning of the year (school pics, fall fund raiser, and fall carnival shortly after). I don't like seeing children not able to attend because of finances. What really got me was when multiple Board Members responded by saying "If I can afford it so can most others". Has anyone else come across these issues? Any comments/suggestions? THANK YOU!
