Pumpkin Fundraiser

The 11th Grade is selling pumpkins to finance their graduation festivities. There will be small and big pumpkins sold for $4 and $8 each. Please fill out this pumpkin order form, put it in an envelope with the required amount of money, and make sure your child brings it to school on either  the 2nd or 4th of October 2017. Eleventh-graders will go through the classrooms in all buildings to collect the order forms.  On Wednesday after the Fall Break (October 18th, 2017) you will be able to pick up your pumpkins yourself in the cafeteria (Pumpkin pick-up times: 8:00am, 1:30pm, and 3:15pm) or your child will also have the chance to receive the pumpkin in class and take it home.

(Please note that children attending Preschool and Elementary School, who are riding the bus, can only take small pumpkins home. Important: For smaller children it is best not to order more than two pumpkins because they do weigh quite a bit.)

Since this is a fundraiser donations would be appreciated. Thank you very much for your contribution!
