WCA – weekly updates newsletter – week of 2/13/2023

Here’s this week’s updates!

1. Spring Formal Committee Sponsored Fundraisers

We have a committee of young people who are planning the Spring Formal this year. They have been earning the funds to help bring the cost down. They have 2 more quick fundraisers they would like to run. They should be simple, and kids/families only participate if they want to.

A. Snack Bag Sales (mornings)

We will be hosting a Snack Bag Sale for students the 2 weeks leading up to Winter Break. This snack bag may be purchased upon arrival at school with the cost of $5.00 per bag. Each student who would like to buy a snack bag may have a choice of a bag of chips or cheezits, a fruit cup or applesauce (which comes with a spoon), two cookies or a pack of gummies, and a capri sun or a water. The money collected from this sale will go toward the fundraising for the Spring Formal. We appreciate and thank you for all of your help supporting our fundraisers.

B. Guessing Jar (lunchtime)

We will be holding a guessing jar fundraiser the 2 weeks leading up to Winter Break. The guesses for the jar will be at lunch times or other freetimes, with the cost of $0.50 per guess. The jar is filled to the top with m&ms and students take turns putting in their guesses on how much they think are in the jar. At the end of the three weeks, we will count the candy and whoever guesses right or closest will receive the big jar of candy, as well as a $10 gift card to Walmart. The money collected will go to the spring formal. Thank you for supporting us in our fundraising.
