First things first….THANK YOU to the students and parents that helped at the bottle drive on January 4.  Thanks to your help, we raised $5,339.10!!!  How incredible is that?

Now until January 31:  Winter Savings Coupon Books  are still for sale.  $20 per book gives you savings to local businesses.  Blue Sky Fundraising, the creator of this book, has generously donated prizes for top selling students.  1st place is a $200 gift card.  Please email Brie Snyder if you would like some books.  BSS Grad Savings Book Fundraiser.pdf
