Every month our VP of Fundraisers, Ms. Crystal Flores, works hard at securing a new restaurant that will donate a portion of their sales on a particular day. This is a great way for local business to give back to the community while we enjoy a great meal. You will find more information about our Dining for Dollars as we get closer to locking in those dates.

Chocolate Madness Month
Our second most important fundraiser of the year is our chocolate sales fundraiser. During the month of February, we ask families to sell World's Finest Chocolate bars. It is completely optional for families to participate, and parents must sign a permission slip before they can start selling. PTA will then give the student one box of 60 bars, and each bar is sold for $1. You may sell as many boxes as you like, provided the money is turned in for each previous box checked out. Chocolate bar flavors are usually milk chocolate, caramel, almond, and dark chocolate. Flavors may vary. The family that sell the highest number of boxes typically gets a special recognition from the PTA.
