Holiday Candy Gram Fundraiser - $1

Groves PTO 5th Grade will be selling candy grams this year in as we enter the holidays. Purchase a candy gram for your friend, teacher, nurse, counselor, cafeteria staff, office staff and admin. This year, we have three options to choose from; simply print at home, fill it out and bring to school with your dollar. Your candy gram and special treat will be delivered to your recipients the week of the December 16th. All orders will be due December 13 in order to ensure delivery. PTO will be on campus during morning drop off to collect candy grams the following days: Monday, Wednesday and Friday the week of the 9th. All proceeds will benefit 5th grade as we prepare for their last year of elementary school. Thank you for your support.
