I am at two elementary buildings, I see the students once a week for 40/45
minutes and receive less than $1 per child for the year for my budget.
PTA/PTO's give us a little extra. We do have a central supply from which we
can order which makes the money go much further. Square 1 Art, Art to
Remember and Original Works--Yours! were a godsend this year. In the past I
always just bought a lot of things I wasn't reimbursed for. Plus I have
written grants. Oh yes--we are also getting our budgets cut for next year.
