City school board approves list of fundraisers for coming year

Among other agenda items this past Thursday, New Albany school trustees approved a list of proposed fundraising activities for the year.

A half century ago, the number of such activities could almost be counted on one hand, but school funding cutbacks in the face of increased costs, larger classes and more extra-curricular activities have led to more and more efforts by booster organizations to raise money.

In fact, some merchants and others in the community who find themselves repeatedly asked for school activities support have actually had to put such donations in their budgeting process each year.

Below, as an aid to help parents and others plan for the school year, is the list as approved. Some are recent additions while other annual events were first approved as early as five years ago.
