Campbell PTA – 2020-21 Year End Financial Report

Hi all,

It's time for my final financial update of the school year. It was an unusual year to say the least but here are some highlights from the year (included in the attached report). We end the year with $39,627 in the bank:
We didn't have any official fundraisers this year but we still had some income from the following sources – totaling $5,646:
  • $1,526 – Spring Auction
  • $521 – Amazon Smile Program
  • $779 – Miscellaneous Donations
  • $435 – Last summer's READ bus book fair
  • $548 – Restaurant Nights
  • $848 – PTA memberships / we had 116 PTA members this year

In addition, we were able to fund the following during the year (total expenses were $20,793):

  • Outdoor classroom supplies – including new garden beds and much needed repair work on the courtyard pond
  • Outdoor classroom coordinator hours – we were able to fund around 24 hours of Ms. Christy's time
  • Virtual learning support: We helped fund Nearpod for the school, a Padlet subscription and locks for the 5th graders to practice locks on
  • Expedition Support: We funded an artist to come speak with our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders during their expedition
  • Classroom initiatives: We were able to fund teachers' needs including supports/supplies needed for learning at home, fun activities once kids returned, book clubs and others
  • Teacher appreciation: We were able to celebrate our teachers throughout the year with an ice cream truck, goodie bags, gift cards etc.
  • 5th grade promotion: We helped to celebrate our current 5th graders with memory books and t-shirts. We also helped fund some surprises for prior year 5th graders (who finally got their kickball game after a year long wait). 
  • Spanish Translation at all PTA meetings
  • We made a donation to the CCPTA fund
  • We paid our membership dues to the Virginia PTA, the CCPTA and paid for insurance
I want to say a thank you to all who volunteered this year! I know it was a difficult year for all. I look forward to catching up with many of you this fall in person! 
Please let me know if you have any questions about the budget. 
Best regards,

Campbell PTA financial update as of 9/30

Hi All,

I hope this finds you well! I am sending my first treasurer report of the year in advance of the PTA meeting coming up on Tuesday (October 13). Since we didn't have too much activity so far this year, I've combined the July, August and September reports into this summary. The document has a summary page (pg 1) and then goes into more detail on the income and expenses. Here are a few highlights so far this school year:
Income:
  • $436 from the READ book fair that was held at the end of last year
  • $111 from the Brick's Pizza night
  • $597 of member dues and with that an additional $224 of additional donations
  • $103 from Silver Diner meals
  • $488 from Amazon
Expenses:
  • $179 for annual insurance policy
  • $200 for an ice cream truck for teacher appreciation
  • $47 for 5th grade supplies
  • $10 for support for the Campbell News Broadcast
  • $580 for outdoor classroom coordinator hours
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I'll also speak briefly about this at the meeting. And if you have ideas about how we should be spending money this year or any other activities the PTA should be involved in, please make sure to fill out a survey to share your ideas:

Campbell PTA financial update as of 5/31

Hi all,
I wanted to give a summary of the PTA's financial activities for the year before our last PTA meeting of the year. Obviously this has been a strange past few months, and that is reflected in the PTA's finances. We brought in less in fundraising since we weren't able to host one of our big fundraising events (the spring festival). However we also spent a lot less than we had budgeted. The end result is that we met our overall financial goals of starting to spend down a bit of our financial reserve. We started off the school year with over $65,000 in our reserve, and we're ending the year somewhere around the $55,000 mark (depending on how much is spent in June). In my opinion, our finances are in good shape, and we are in a position to potentially aim to spend down more of our reserves again next year.

Fundraising Highlights:

  • $10,318 – October fun run
  • $3,202 – Online camp auction
  • $389 – Election day bake sale
  • $1,669 – Amazon Smile and Amazon affiliate link
  • $281 – Box tops
  • $1,101 – Restaurant nights
  • $2,092 – Miscellaneous donations
Funding Highlights:
  • Outdoor Classroom Coordinator – we funded over 90 hours of Ms. Christy's time
  • We helped to fund many of the supplies for Ms. Christy's lessons
  • We funded a landscaping crew to clean up Campbell's grounds 
  • In support of expeditionary learning:
    • Toys and games were purchased in support of the Kindergarten expedition on play
    • 2nd grade planted native plants around Campbell and in the courtyard for their bird expedition
  • $1,500 in books for classroom libraries (this will show up as a June expense)
  • We helped with the upkeep and feeding of Paige the library bunny
  • Classroom resources, including:
    • A field trip to Green Spring Gardens for 5th grade
    • Support for the Jamestown field trip for 4th grade
    • Alternative seating for several classrooms (more to come over the summer, if everything goes as planned!)
  • The following Teacher Appreciation events were paid for by the PTA:
    • Teacher/staff breakfast near Thanksgiving
    • Lunch during conferences
    • Teacher appreciation week: gift certificates for teachers/staff to Lost Dog
  • We supported Girls on the Run and Boys on the Move by reimbursing for snacks (and t-shirts for BOTM)
  • We paid for pizza for the participants in the musical
  • We hosted 2 very fun community events: a Fall Festival, and a Family Game Night
  • We made a $1,500 donation to the CCPTA CPCI grant fund, and a $100 donation to SEPTA
  • We hosted a “pizza and packets” event over the summer supporting summer learning
  • We replaced the dilapidated sheds
  • We were able to provide childcare, Spanish translation, and pizza, fruit and vegetables at all of our (pre-pandemic) PTA meetings
  • In support of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic:
    • We reimbursed teachers' postage for sending notes and materials to their students 
    • We paid for basic school supplies for VPI students to use at home
    • We were able to help with over $700 of resources from our emergency food pantry at the outset of the pandemic
The details of our expenses and income are included in the attached report. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions. And on a personal note, I've really enjoyed the opportunity to be your treasurer for the past 2 years. You all have been lovely to work with.
Stay safe,
