Candy Bar Fundraiser


Beginning Friday, February 7th, we (as a school) will be selling chocolate bars as one of our big fundraisers for the year! The fundraiser will last for 2 weeks, ending Monday, February 24th.


We are asking EACH family to sell at LEAST one box of chocolate bars.


Each box contains 60 candy bars and will be sold for $1.00 a piece. Our goal is to sell all 50 boxes and the school will receive 50% of the proceeds.


Prizes will be given to the top 3 sellers!




Thank you,

Carden PTO
