Dear Families,


We are having a Gift Basket Fundraiser at the “Winter Fling” dance on February 16th.

  • Please find your student’s classroom below, and donate a suggested item (new and unused) or other item related to the basket theme. Baskets will be created from the items you donate, and auctioned off at the winter dance.


  • The class whose basket gets the highest bid wins a pizza party!


Proceeds from the baskets will go to fieldtrips, supplies and programs.

Thank You for Your Contribution to Your Child’s School!
