I am torn on fundraisers. Dd is only 2, so we haven't encountered them yet, but I am also a teacher. I know how much our PTA does with the moment earned from them and how much it supplements our limited budget. Yet I want nothing to do with them! I would rather just write a check and have all the money benefit the school instead of buying junk and a small portion going to the school. Yet, I know the "prizes" are a big deal to kids. My hope is that we can talk about why we are not doing a fundraiser and do something special as a family instead of prizes. But we will see how that works once dd starts school!
