What did we spend the money?
Ice Cream Fridays and the few cents earned from chick-fil-a meals: Eric Gonzalez was able to get us a super awesome deal on flat screen tvs for a video wall. The money earned from ice cream and chick fil a has gone to purchase 10 big screens (6 will go in gym and 4 in MP room so we can have a large high definition screen for presentations etc. Thank you to all who participate, those parents who volunteer to help serve every Wednesday and Friday, and thank you to Erin Travland for being the contact and the delivery person for ice cream and chick fil a! Thank you Eric Gonzalez for always looking for great deals for our school!
