Annual Cookie Dough Fundraiser

Cookies

Dear Parents:

Our Annual Cookie Dough Fundraiser will begin on Thursday, October 25th and end on Thursday, November 8, 2018   All order forms and money need to be turned in by Thursday, November 8, 2018.  The proceeds of this year’s fundraiser will go towards educational purposes.

This year we are asking that each student sell a minimum of 5 boxes.  If we do this we will make over $5,000 profit. All boxes of cookies sell for $16.00. Your child has received his/her order form and will take orders and collect money. If you need more order forms, you can get them from the school office. He/she will submit their order forms and money to their teacher by Thursday, November 8th.

We do not encourage students to sell door to door but would rather they sell to relatives or well-known neighbors.  Parents have also helped in the past by selling to co-workers and this is appreciated.

Please make checks payable to St. John School.  Thank you for your support in helping us achieve our goals for the benefit of our students.

Delivery of the cookie dough will be Tuesday, November 20th @ 12:45 pm.  We’ll give you notice so that you can bring your coolers to school when you pick up your child at the end of the day.  

Prizes:

  1. MONEY BAG:    Each family who sells 15 boxes by Thursday, November 8, 2018 will get a chance to reach into the money bag.  Families with more than one child should select who will draw from the money bag.

    Remember:  Every 15 boxes sold per family is another chance to reach into the money bag.  

    Whatever bill they pull from the bag (from $1-$50), they get to keep.

  2. Top Selling Class:  Pizza Party (minimum of 75 boxes sold).     

               

    All money raised through our fundraising efforts directly benefits the children of St. John Catholic School.  Your support is greatly appreciated!  Please call 624-3865 if you have any questions.

I was impressed with the enthusiasm that our students showed towards their demonstrations and presentations. I want to thank Dr. Mendoza for facilitation and coordination of the science fair. Our students were given the opportunity to share their gifts of innovation and creativity living our Root Belief of Nothing Short of Excellence. Thank you to teachers and parents for attending this unforgettable event. Dr. Mendoza will announce the results of judging very soon.

If you have not begun re-enrollment, it is first come first serve now that new families are enrolling. Spaces are limited, therefore contact our office at your earliest convenience.
