Yankee Candle Fundraiser Begins

Today, we’re kicking off a new fundraiser designed to help your student earn money toward their student accounts. Keep in mind that next year is a trip year!

Students will come home today with their Yankee Candle fundraising brochures. These feature candles, accessories, and more from Yankee Candle. For each item a student sells, 40% will be added to their student account. Completed order forms are due back to Mr. Buti and Mr. Stewart by April 4.

Delivery of the items will be the week before Mother’s Day. (We’ll notify you of the exact date later, but it will certainly be before Mother’s Day.) Think Mother’s Day gifts!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Sara Zimmermann.
