Candy Bar Sale Continues!
The GQPTA has decided to extend the Candy Bar Fundraiser until after Spring Break! We have BIG plans for the playground that include purchasing swings and expanding the walking track. We need your help selling as many candy bars as possible. If you need another box, please send in a note to your teacher.
The top seller in K-2 & 3-5 will win a Razor 360, the K-2 & 3-5 top classes will win an ice cream party and we have one more super cute stuffed animal to raffle off at the end of the sale. Good luck selling!!
