'Kids Are First' Fall Catalog Fundraiser
Has your Pioneer been selling and turning in their coupons? The classrooms that turn in the most everyday get to have Ollie the Owl visit their classroom for the whole day and the students have been going crazy for him! Also, sales coupons are drawn daily and students have been winning prizes so make sure to turn them in as you sell. We have one week left as orders are due this Friday, November 4th.
Here are the classrooms that received Ollie the Owl this past week:
Monday - Nystrom and Storch
Tuesday - Nystrom and Hubbard
Wednesday - Woodard and Pithey
Thursday - Jacobs and Sykes
Friday - Childs and Hubbard
You also will be able to place orders online throughout the sale (Instructions to register for online sales can be found on the instruction flier link below). You will find great gifts for everyone as well as items for the household. The catalog features gift wrap, magazines, holiday items, tumblers and tasty goodies. Your child has the opportunity to win daily prizes as well as class wide prizes! Thank you as always for supporting Pinetree!
