PUSD spends approximately $11,500 per school year to educate each student and we receive only 58% of these funds from the state and federal government.
The Giving Campaign is critical to our schools. The Giving Campaign committee is seeking 100% participation from all Beach parents at whatever level you can afford. To this end we are asking that you make a contribution to the Giving Campaign by the end of October. While the official “ask” is $1,658 per student, please give what you can afford. That can be $10 a month or $5,000. Every dollar helps.
All the money that goes to the Giving Campaign comes back to BPO. In turn, it funds all that BPO supports: our art, music, math, science and computer teachers, our library and our assemblies, to name a few things. If you would like to see exactly what BPO (and thus the Giving Campaign) funds, please let me know and I’d be happy to forward our budget to you.
