 Important Announcements and Updates:

 

CATALOG FUNDRAISERS

 

This year we are participating in 2 separate Catalog Fundraisers which are a perfect way to purchase some items to keep on-hand for the upcoming holiday season. The CherryDale catalog is being used as a direct fundraiser for the 5th grade classes and has been distributed within that grade only. The Miss Chocolate catalog has been distributed to grades K – 4. Extra catalogs for both distributors are available in the PTA office and school lobby.

 

THE AUCTION RAFFLE

 

Since there was such a tremendous amount of success and fun with this last year, we are bringing raffle baskets back to the Auction again this year and we need your help! We are asking parents to donate items toward themed baskets, or small donations so we can shop on your behalf to create those amazing baskets that wowed everyone last year. Forms will be going home in yellow folders by Monday (October 16th) so please be on the look-out! We need to build a team to help engineer these amazing creations so please join the Raffle Basket Committee on Konstella for more info on how you can help out.
