Eco-Friendly Fundraising Activity
In an attempt to raise funds for a field trip to the Aquarium of the Pacific, the entire first grade unit, which consists of 80 students, will hold an Eco-friendly fundraiser.

There will be an attached order form and envelope to the letter. Donations would also be accepted from individuals who are not interested in purchasing a designed reusable shopping bag, but still interested in helping the first grade unit meet their goal of $1,500. It is important that we let everyone know how we greatly appreciate their help in reaching our target. As part of our fundraiser kick...
