Mom’s Pantry – Due Feb 14

Please have all order forms and money in to the school by Thursday, February 14. Online orders need to be in as well (by noon on the 15th)

If you have not made any sales, try just ordering one item from the catalogue for your own pantry. I highly recommend the spices 🙂

Happy New Year to all of the wonderful PCS Families and Staff!

Thank you to all who participated in this event. Remember that you can buy gift cards online at any time – look on the school website under Parent Committee Fundraising to learn how.

2. If you missed ordering a t-shirt or hoodie in September you have another chance…we are putting an order in this month. The form is attached to this email if you wish to order. All order forms and money must be in by January 31.

3. Mom’s Pantry Fundraiser will be coming in February. Watch for details.
