The big announcement of the winner will be made on April 1. Keep helping your students sell raffle tickets and remember that tickets must be returned by noon on Thursday to be counted in the grand prize total.

Confetti Eggs
Thanks to your teamwork this booth has been very successful in generating lots of fun and dollars to our school over the years. Please turn in all empty eggs by Wednesday, March 29.

A confetti egg is a real egg shell that has been emptied, RINSED OUT, then filled with confetti and taped closed. It is used to surprise friends, family, and maybe faculty by breaking them over an unsuspecting head. Of course, retaliation is a great part of the fun.

Books and Video Sale
We are in need of gently used books, DVDs, and VHS videos for our Congé book and video sale. Children’s books, fiction and nonfiction, are also needed. If you have any used books or previously viewed videos that you would like to donate, please bring them to the Advancement Office.
