Cookie Dough Fundraiser

On Tuesday, your student will receive a fundraiser information packet during our cookie dough kick off event. This packet includes many fun items, including the famous Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough. Items can be ordered and paid for online (preferred), or alternatively, those ordering can fill out the order form and pay cash or check by sending money to school with the student. If paying by check, please make checks out to JSE PTO.

All items ordered through the website will be shipped directly to the person ordering, with the exception of cookie dough. All cookie dough will ship to the school to be delivered by the student (due to needing to remain frozen).

Students are encouraged to bring in their money each day for any sales they make for customers paying through the student. Money will be collected in our main hallway conference room.

See flyer below for prizes awarded for each level of sales.

Parents, recently you should have received an I-Ready report, along with your student's individualized test results. Please take time to review and discuss this with your child. If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's teacher.


We are looking forward to some exciting events in September.

Our fall book fair will run next week from September 19 - September 23. We are also busy planning for our Lunch with a Loved One event on September 23.

Details for these events will be coming soon, but mark your calendar now!
