  3. Just curious, does this fundraiser benefit the entire Rosa Parks community, or just the JBBP? Thanks.

  4. And if its just JBBP, how does that play out? Are funds for immersion kept seperate at the PTA level, at the school level?

  5. JBBP has a parent/community/teacher/staff organization called "PTCC" (parent teacher community council). This organization has several fundraising events per year, in addition to an ongoing Kifu donation program.
    Essentially, the bulk of the money is used for Japanese language instruction, cultural activities, class field trips, art, music and more.
    However, at the beginning of each year, PTCC 'grants' every class in Rosa Parks, GE & JBBP a 'kitty.' This "kitty" is used at the teacher's discretion for supplies to supplement what SFUSD provides.
    So, this event will benefit the entire school (the only time we have "tagged" fundraising specifically for a purchase was for new ibooks for our language program) and the students who are at Rosa Parks Elementary in 2009/2010.
    Hope this answers the questions of 'where does the $$$ go.'
    There is a PTA which represents the entire school: GE, Special Ed & JBBP. The PTA is just 2 years old, so fundraising has not been their focus.

  6. Great post. I especially found it interesting. For this matter, once I discussed with one of my friends, not only about the content you talked about, but also to how to improve and develop, but no results. So I am deeply moved by what you said today.
