All parents of a child in Holy Cross School is a member of PEACE. At the beginning of each school year all families are invited to a dinner meeting where each family is asked to vote for large projects that staff or parents have presented to the PEACE Board asking for support of funds.
The budget for this school year was passed for over $26,000. This money includes over $16,000 in recurring expenses and $10,000 in large projects.
Some examples of recurring expenses are Boy Scout and Girl Scout sponsorships, graduation receptions, spelling bee trophies, hand sanitizer,and honor roll breakfast.
In addition to these expenses, each teacher is given $200 to cover classroom supplies. Over $2000 will be given as a tithe to the general fund of the congregation.
The results of this years large projects are:
- BrainPop on-line subscription for all grades,
- 10 iPads with Otterboxes for school use,
- Preschool/PreK/Childcare Promethean Boards and
- 2 Laptops for the FIRST Lego League Club.
The line item budget for recurring expenses was approved verbally at the meeting.
