It seems Sally Parsons (Editor's comment: This portion of comment removed. The Pleasanton Weekly does not use home addresses or telephone numbers in its print editions or on Town Square postings except by the residents, themselves, and then only with verification)is the Boosters Key Contact for fund raising associated with the sound system. It is looking more and more like the Boosters did try to pull a fast one.

Raising money for the truly extracurricular activities is legitimate, good job boosters.
PUSD did not "cut coaching jobs along with programs and classroom aides, such as reading specialists" thanks to Brozosky who persuaded the Board to wait and see.
The State gave PUSD all of the money with extra!!!
The propaganda for the next attempt at extorting the taxpayers for the parcel tax has already begun.

Interesting MUST be actually one of the vocal minority complainers on Gatetree Circle.
1. What is your intention for putting Sally's address and blaming her for your rant?
2. The boosters do not "pull fast ones". Bill Coupe very capably runs Amador and NOTHING happens at the school without his consent.
A very high percentage of all money raised at all fundraising events put on by the booster club goes back directly to those particular teams that raise the money. This enables Amador Valley Athletes to have the lowest cost to participate in all sports of any school in Northern California.
You really need to get a life. This is the worst example of a "the glass is half empty" mentality that I can imagine.
As the article says Sally Parsons, Lori Rice, and Suzy Graham deserve enourmous acalades for their unselfish efforts! Its embarrassing that anyone in the community would take such a negative spin on such a positive story. You should be ashamed!
