We have been very successful in our fundraising efforts for the Catalina field trip! Hot cocoa and donut sales brought in quite a bit of money in the last week of 2nd quarter. Just a reminder, we are still taking orders for Jamba Juice delivery. If you would like to place an order for a Friday delivery, please get order forms and money to the office the Wednesday prior. Mr. Buckman has order forms and can send those home, if needed.
We’re all SO excited for Catalina, and we know you are too! We will be choosing our chaperones for the trip early next semester. You can also expect additional payment information early in the semester as well. Thanks again for ALL that you do!
