The PTO Poinsettia Fundraiser was a success! Our net income was $3492.98 this year. Key in our local endeavor, Klepac gave us a wonderful deal on the poinsettias and came to our rescue to get us the extras we needed. We couldn’t have done it without them and their beautiful product. Kay Kuebel guided a wonderful team of dedicated workers. They sent out the flyers, received and calculated orders and money, and directed and coordinated pick-ups. All that, and they made it look easy. We have great people working with us!
The following businesses donated the wonderful prizes this year:
1st place - $200 Visa Card donated by Barnett Family Chiropractic

4th place - $25 Gift Card to Sonic donated by Dirt Works

It is so magnificent to see the community embrace our efforts in these hard economic times. These great prizes really got the kids into the selling spirit, especially the following winners:
1st place – Hayden Riba (3rd grader) sold 57.
2nd place – Keirsten Sauceda (Pre-K) sold 50.
3rd place – Alex Almanza (7th grader) sold 37.

Our warmest appreciation also goes out to every student who tried to sell this year as well.
