Sell, Sell, Sell — Support Our School Through our Chocolate Fundraiser!

Today marks the final day our our Fall fundraiser — World’s Finest Chocolate.  Hopefully your kids had a chance to turn in their order form today (Monday, October 22nd).  If your child didn’t turn in their order form, go ahead and send it in with him or her tomorrow so we can start to process the orders.  Thank you for your support of our children, teachers, and school community! Your help makes a huge difference. Just for fun, we’re including a quick clip from the fundraising kick off assembly.  As Mr. Towner would say, “sell, sell, sell!”
