For more detailed information, please see the Treasurer’s Report at the PTO general meetings and those posted on the PTO website.  If you would like to help ensure the PTO money is well spent the best way is to volunteer for key decision making roles, such as festival project managers, coordinators, and the PTO board.  The PTO is always in need of volunteers to run more efficiently.
