Bagel Sale Update: 

Dear upcoming 7th and 8th grade returning families,
Part of the Middle School curriculum includes fundraising to supplement Class Field trips to Washington D.C., Chicago, camp and other events.  Yearlong bagel sales provide an opportunity for students to serve community hours and raise money.We are looking for a couple more parents who can supervise Friday morning bagel sales. The time commitment is from 7:30-8:10am.  The students run the sales, but it is always helpful to have one or two adults on-hand to support them.  The adults will need to count money and leave it in the office. We are asking for help so that new families can be ‘trained’ before the end of the school year. Please contact Mr. Darin if you are interested in continuing this MS tradition. 
Friday Bagel sales will continue through Friday June 7th. As a token of appreciation for your continued support, bagels will be 75 cents on June 7th! Please remember there is a pre-sale option to have bagels on-hand through your weekend!  Forms are outside the office or here.Bagelorderform
