My sons' school does not have a lot of volunteering. There is no volunteering during the school day. There are opportunities for banquets, etc. We have been at this school 2 years and everytime I volunteered in the past - at the old school -

How much money is being spent by the school to raise the $1000?

Is the event specifically for a fundraiser or is it an event that is good as an event with the extra $$ as a bonus?

Wow how many kids are in this school that they have to be released by assigned carpool numbers?

It looks like a few ladies have a lock on the process and don't welcome newcomers.

2*8*30=480 kids - not sure how many are sibs and/or how many are in carpools plus there is aftercare. I guess there is limited space

I would have to agree there is a group like that - that was our old school.

It was billed as a fundraiser and it was said many times in the meeting - remember we are trying to raise money so we have to think about cost.

But I am wondering if it is something fun to do and then the money is a bonus.
