Good evening! We have a very busy week ahead and a few more in the approaching weeks. On top of that, we are currently in the middle of our All-In-One Sale. If your child has not picked up their packet, please remind them to see Ms. Dothard or Mr. Carr so that they can help us achieve our goal. We would love to see every family sale at least 20 items. We have been very blessed in the past with some extremely talented sales people leading the charge by selling hundreds of items and they have agreed to continue selling this year! Let’s all rally behind their leadership and have a record year in sales! All students who sell at least 10 items by next Friday can visit Mr. Carr with proof of their sales for their choice of a Chick-fil-A or Papa John’s coupon.
