Thanks everyone for your suggestions.
It's hard to be a PTO president. No wonder ours last year threatened to quit so often. haa. I met with my board and 1/2 wants to just tell them that we are not paying for it, and let the school handle it. I would LOVE to do that too, but i have to be the bigger person. I have to work with the school and do what is best for the kids.
Even though i didn't get an apology from the principal for signing without disgussing. He now knows how i feel about the situation, and maybe that might make him think first before doing something like that again. If not...then i will MAKE SURE he knows next year that the PTO will not honor a contract that is not approved and signed by the PTO board. I've not met with the new representative nor have i seen any samples of a yearbook. I think we are pretty much going to sit back and let the school handle it this year. I asked about him having time to put this yearbook together as it is very time consuming. He and the secretary said they have already set aside time to work on it during the day. Nice to know they are working on yearbook during school time.
The whole school seems uneasy this year. Teachers are writing up so many demerits for stupid things and they generally just don't seem happy. The front office is not the normal laid back happy people that it normally is. Same people...just don't seem to be happy. The principal is not new to the school, but stepped up from vice principal to principal......and i'm not sure what is going on, but no one seems happy. Maybe the control has gotten to his head or something??
I dunno, but i'm biting my tounge and letting the school handle the yearbooks. If i don't it will probably be a miserable year. He will soon find out just how much time it actually takes to put it together.
