Charleston Wrap Fundraiser - Ordering Deadline Extended
Thank you to those who have already placed your Charleston Wrap orders. We have made it to just over half of our goal, so in order to get closer to our goal, the ordering deadline has been extended. There is still time to finalize and submit orders! Remember, the money we raise helps us offer great resources for Spring Brook! If you or someone you know still wants to order, it is not too late to submit order forms or complete online orders through http://www.charlestonwrapstore.com using our school code (z-11280). Please continue to send in prize coupons to your child's teacher through the new deadline as well.
Monday, September 30th is the last day you can submit order forms. It's also the last day to order online and to have your sales count toward your child's prizes. Be sure to write your student's name, code, teacher, and contact info at the top of your order forms. Please make all checks payable to Spring Brook PTA.
If you have any questions about the fundraiser please email Tiffany Malik (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Marissa Kopp (email@example.com).
Thank you in advance for your supportâ€” we could not do it without our amazing parents and staff at Spring Brook!
