The Whittier PTA is a mission-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization run by volunteers.
The budget is a financial representation of our goals, activities and operations we expect to conduct during the fiscal year (July 1st through June 30th). The budget estimates annual income and expenses and is presented at the April General Meeting, sits for a 30-day review, then is voted on by Membership at the May General Meeting.
Developing the PTA budget is a team effort between the board, committee chairs and other volunteers. HERE is an overview of the process.
Where Does All The Money Raised Go?
Teacher Wish List(s)
According to a survey published by the U.S. Department of Education, 94% of public school teachers spent their own money on classroom supplies. The average (mean) amount spent without reimbursement was $478.
Teacher Wish Lists are a common way for Parent Teacher Associations (PTA) to support school staff, thus enhancing the educational experience for all children. Teachers compile their Wish Lists at the beginning of the year and these items are presented annually at the first general PTA meeting. Wish Lists ‘sit’ for 30-days, then are voted on by membership at the second meeting of the year. The Whittier PTA invites you to view the wishes granted to our hard-working teachers and staff below!
