Sutton Middle School Capital Expenditure* Request Form
Every school year the Sutton Middle School PTA operates within a budget that has been approved by the
general membership to promote programs and events that benefit all SMS students. Thanks to a lot of
hard work, and the generosity of our supporters, this year the PTA is fortunate that our fundraising efforts
will exceed our budget. After the budget expenses have been met, the PTA will use the remaining funds
for capital expenditures*.
As a member of the SMS PTA we would like your input regarding which capital expenditures should be
considered. Each request that is received (including the ones listed below) will be researched by the
Capital Expenditure Committee for cost and feasibility. The Committee will present their findings to the
PTA membership at the Coffee Talk on Wednesday, April 2, and a vote will be taken to determine how
the money will be spent.
Please let us know what improvements you would like to see happen at SMS by filling out this form
and returning it to the “PTA Grants” mailbox in the Copier Workroom by Friday, February 29.
Some Capital Expenditure requests that have been received include…
High speed digital copier for Copier Workroom
Volleyball net and equipment
Resurface tennis courts
Washer and dryer for school sports programs
Replace brick wall along Jett Road sidewalk
Track around lower (football/soccer) field
