Support 8th Graders in funding their Capstone Trip to Puerto Rico!

Our tamale fundraiser was a huge success!   Over 4,000 tamales will be made in the next days!  This sale helps support our 8th Graders in funding their capstone trip to Puerto Rico this spring.  Pre-ordered tamales may be picked up on Thursday, Nov 19 between 4:00pm - 7:00pm. The 8th graders will also be selling limited quantities of individual tamales and other food items during the Game Night this Thursday, Nov 19 from 5:30pm - 7:00pm.

In addition, a 50/50 Raffle is also being held to support our 8th graders. Tickets cost $10 each and can be purchased from 8th Graders after school.  Half of the ticket cost goes to support the trip and half to the raffle winner.  Last year's winner received approximately $3500!  The winner will be announced during the December 17 PTO meeting.  Also, if you know of any businesses that may be open to having students come and present their plan and sell raffle tickets, please contact Ms. Lainez in the office at 816-418-6000.
 We sincerely appreciate your support of our 8th grade Puerto Rico trip.
