today’s news and information gleanings from here and there!
Quote for today … “As a former president of the Columbia Elementary PTO for 6 years, I strongly suggest that the PTO’s have their books checked at least once a year and have 2 signatures on your checks. I know that doesn’t mean that money can’t be taken, but it should help. There should be a report given at meetings to show where monies go. I’m sorry that this happened to a school especially with all the money that the school districts have not received from the government.“ – One of many comments following the article about the Mount Joy woman’s arrest for theft from the PTO at Lancaster Online.
