Pathfinder PTSA General Meeting – June 2

Please join the Pathfinder PTSA for the final meeting of the general membership for the year. We will be gathering for a last time on Tuesday, June 2 at 7pm. If you’d like to attend, please RSVP with your name and connection to Pathfinder at for a link to the Zoom meeting.

This is one of our most important meetings of the year, as it sets up Pathfinder PTSA for next school year. We will be voting on a 2020-2021 budget and a slate of new officers. We will also spend a few minutes highlighting some of the accomplishments of the past school year.

Anyone in the Pathfinder community is welcome to attend, though voting is limited to people who are members of the Pathfinder PTSA.

Slate of New Officers

We are thrilled to propose this slate of PTSA officers for 2020-21:

  • President: Seth Perkins
  • Vice President – Communications & Fundraising: Candice Smith
  • Vice President – Events & Education: Amanda Leonard
  • Co-Treasurer: Danielle Heckert
  • Co-Treasurer: Kate Dabe
  • Secretary: Sadie Fine

2020-2021 PTSA Budget

The proposed Pathfinder PTSA budget for 2020-21 can be found at the link at the bottom of this post. The budget is designed to set next year’s PTSA Board up for success, especially as we deal with so many unknowns. It has a very conservative fundraising goal, yet still funds the important PTSA programs and expenses, such as the Garden Teacher, Academic Achievement and Classroom/Specialist funds. The framework encourages new ideas and innovation in an uncertain environment.

Given our strong fundraising this past year, coupled with planned expenses not incurred this spring, we will be able to carry forward approximately $23,500 to next year’s budget. We proposed using $31,590 of more than $100,000 in reserve funds to make up the shortfall so that we can maximize our ability to fund Academic Achievement ($62,500) and Classrooms/Specialists ($23,780) as the school and teachers wrestle with continued challenges posed by social distancing.
