6th Grade Trip Butterbraid Fundraiser!

This year we are teaming up with Integrity Fundraising to sell butter braids to raise money for the 6th grade overnight Denver Museum of Nature and Science Camp-In (which includes class t-shirts). Our goal is to have every student sell 10 butter braids. Additionally, the top seller will receive a $50 gift card to amazon, so encourage your child to sell...sell....sell!


Who are 6th graders selling to? We asked that they sell to family, friends, and close neighbors. Please do not go door to door.


Important things to remember:

- Online ordering is the easiest and most convenient for everyone

- If paying by check, please make checks payable to PK8

- All money needs to be collected when the order is placed (unless they order online and pay via credit card)

- All order forms must be turned in by Thursday, November 17th!

- The ButterBraids will be in on December 1st
