Pizza Days are Back!!

Starting November 6, every Wednesday in November is a WINS-day.

You win because you don’t need to cook dinner for the family.  Your kids win because they love pizza (no really they do). The Education Foundation wins with donations from the participating Pizzeria’s.  MOST IMPORTANTLY!!!!! CLASSROOMS WIN THROUGH GRANTS FROM THE FOUNDATION!!!!

So every Wednesday purchase a Pizza from one of the pizzerias listed on the attached flyer. Your order will show these local business that supporting the Foundation is beneficial to them and to the students in our classrooms. All funds raised by the Foundation go to fund teacher grants that are submitted throughout the year.

Thanks for being hungry and thanks for trying some of the best pizza in town.
