Budget deficit disclosed;
Shoviin cuts spending
“Budget forms are filled out
by each school supported depart­
ment listing their expenses for
the school year,” stated Vice­
principal Hubert Shoviin. “I go
over these forms and cut some
unneeded expenditures without
hindering department activities.”
Debate teams, the Grantonian,
athletics, Gendrills, rally, dra­
ma, assembly committee, thé
band and orchestra, among oth­
ers are all dependent on school
funds. A faculty adviser is the
head of each activity in order to
maintain a budget.
“There are not enough ways
to make money,” commented Mr.
Shoviin. “The student body card
is our main source of income, but
the Grantonian takes $2 or $3
from every card sold. This leaves
$1 for student funds.”
Dads’ club donates $200 for

“The budget committee is set
up only for students to see how
their money is spent,” said Mr.
Shoviin. With a shifting around
of expenses this year the school
should be able to break even.
“Money was spent last year in
order to give Gendrills and Pep
squad a chance to get started. It
is hoped this year, these groups
will bring some revenue to the

more support from students at­

might even come out ahead.”
