So our DC just sent out an email stating that there will be a potluck supper (which presumably means they want us all to bring something) for the teachers on May 29, and they would like each family to contribute $20 per kid for this celebration. Is it reasonable for me to politely inquire about how the contributions will be used? Mainly I want to know that it is actually going to the teachers. One of my kid's teachers let slip one day that the teachers weren't paid for snow days, of which we had numerous this year. We get nothing back for days missed like that, of course, so I was appalled to hear the teachers weren't being paid. So I'm a little suspicious of what this money is going to.
