Fall Fundraiser:
Happy October, Stallion Parents! Our school’s annual Stuff the Boots Fall Fundraiser starts next Monday 10/16 and runs for TWO weeks through 10/27. Please check your Thursday folders for a colorful flyer with a donation form on the back. Donations will open this weekend if you would like to get a head start! Double your donation through your company, check out PTA Facebook page this week for a list of known companies that match. We encourage you all to donate online instead of sending in the paper donation form (unless matching) and help us reach our $35,000 goal. Let’s Stuff the Boots, together!
