How much do parents donate to BUSD elementary school?
We've just started in BUSD with a happy kinder. I want to be an active and supportive parent but I'm totally confused by the fund-raising efforts. The school seems to be constantly fund-raising.. $40 here for supplies, $100 for field trips, $100 for farm & garden, etc... I'm honestly tired of the endless fund-raising and just want to write one check or scheduled monthly checks. Soooo... my question is.. how much is a good annual donation or monthly donation? We're pretty middle of the road income-wise. We are saving a bit because he's no longer in a private pre-school but would also love to save some more for his college fund.
How much do you donate to your BUSD elementary school? How much is enough to be a solid public school supporter?
