SPRING FORWARD TECHNOLOGY FUNDRAISER
Over $10,000 raised!
Thanks to YOU and your amazing children we are currently at $10,832 which means every Falcon has earned 2 free dress days! Students may wear free dress, athletic wear, or pajamas on Wednesday, May 10th and Wednesday, May 17th. Be sure to mark your calendars!
But don’t stop yet! If we get to $13,000, Mrs. Macy has sweetened the pot by offering a third free dress day.
To participate, pick up an order form for Jamba Juice discount cards. Each $10 card purchased earns $5 for the school and a discount on Jamba Juice worth up to $20 in savings for you. Donations in lieu of card purchases are also welcome.
Everybody loves smoothies - please share with all your family and friends.
The fundraiser has been extended to May 1st.
Thank you for your support!
