HONEY BAKED HAM FUNDRAISER
We are so excited that our Honey Baked Ham in Wakefield has partnered with us for an Easter Ham Fundraiser where 20% of ALL gift card sales will go to our school!!!!!! Please consider purchasing your Easter dinner ham through this link and share with friends and family across the country! These gift cards can be used at ANY Honey Baked Ham in the nation and NEVER expire!! Also, the best is, if you/they do plan to use it for Easter, you can go ahead and reserve your ham with your local HBH before your gift card arrives. You don't pay for your ham (or whatever meal you reserve) until you pick up! So easy! Gift cards do take 7 days to arrive, so go ahead and get yours now, and please share this with everyone you know as it's such a great way your friends and family can help our school while paying for their yummy dinner! Oh...and don't forget teacher appreciation week is coming up. Gift cards are always a great way to show your teacher how much they are loved.

PTA MEMBERSHIP & VOLUNTEER FORMS
Please consider joining the PTA this year. The PTA plays an important role in your child's school life, enabling them to participate in enriching experiences, get new technology, art, music, and PE equipment, and of course, new playground equipment. And signing up to become a volunteer doesn't mean you are commiting yourself to spending hours of your time at school! Volunteering incorporates everything from sending in supplies to providing assistance at events - just choose what is relevant to you, when the sign up forms are sent!
