Dear 5th Grade Parents,
The 5th Grade Picnic Committee met and discussed fundraising opportunities for the 5th grade Moving Up Day and Picnic on June 18th. We decided to continue to tradition of having a basket raffle and a bake sale at the Elementary Science Fair on Friday, March 13th. This fundraising event has been well received in the past and has raised significant funds for the 5th grade picnic.
We are looking for parents to donate any item, money, or gift card that can be used for our baskets. We have assigned each 5th Grade class a basket theme and any monetary donations will be used to fill in needed items for the baskets. The basket assignments and gift ideas are on bottom of this letter. All of the money raised at the bake sale and basket raffle will help offset the cost of the picnic on 5th Grade Moving Up Day.
All donations need to be sent in to school by Friday, February 28th. We will be sending another letter to ask for help with our Science Fair Bake Sale. Thank you in advance for all of your support. We are looking forward to celebrating our 5th Graders in June!
