Fall Fundraiser

Money raised from our fall fundraiser helps fund field trips, purchase Bear Paw rewards, and assist with student and other classroom needs.  We will be kicking off the fall fundraiser the week of September 17.  Students will be able to earn prizes based on the number of items sold.  

We are partnering with Great American in creating an online store that sells many items including magazine subscriptions, sports tumblers, savings passes, gifts, snacks, jewelry, holiday wreaths plus much more.
