We are asking you to look through the brochure, call Grandma or Grandpa, and see how you can help support our PTSA!
Please be sure to take the payment for anything you sell. We are accepting cash and checks- made out to "PRS PTSA".
All orders and money must be turned in Feb. 12th.
The cookie dough will be available for pickup Thursday March 3rd. YOU MUST COME TO THE SCHOOL TO PICK UP YOUR ORDERS! We will not allow any student to take the dough home on the bus.
