Spring Fling!

Kudos to all of our staff who volunteered in preparation for or that day of the Spring Fling. We had an AMAZING turnout and raised $4908.25 as a building!


Tickets ~ $1,979.25

Silent Auction ~ $1,829.00

Vendors ~ $245.00

Book Fair ~ $855.00 (Sales - $3694.77)

TOTAL RAISED = $4908.25


This was an increase from last year's Spring Fling!

Gerner Fundraising

The Gerner Center has two primary sources of fundraising - Gerner Center and PTA. The Gerner Center fundraising includes: Papa John's, Little Angels Pictures, Spring Fling, Box Tops and the 5K Fun Run.


The allocations for next year's budget from fundraising is:

Staff Meals & Building T-Shirts ~ this is provided by any fundraising involving staff, not parents - $1500.00

PBIS - $500.00

ECSE/Title I/Bright Futures Field Trips - $2000.00 (with additional funding from PTA)

TOTAL = $4000.00


Current Balance = $8879 (with Spring Fling deposit)

Anticipated additional revenue through end of year = $1200 (Lil Angels and Papa Johns)

TOTAL BALANCE ANTICIPATED= $10,079.00


Since we had additional funding raised from the Spring Fling than anticipated, Building Leadership Team will be reviewing the budget to determine how additional funds will be spent (technology, PBIS, etc.). Due to all communication to parents regarding the use of funds dedicated to technology, PBIS, field trips and playground equipment, these are the only areas in which we can purchase from. Our goal is to spend 85% of funding each year, since our families are only in the building for 2-3 years at most. All budget items are be tied directly to the BSIP goals and strategies.
