PTA Candy Cane & Bake Sale Fund Raiser

Halsey Parents and Faculty,

Next week Monday, December 17 and Tuesday, December 18 the PTA will host a fundraiser in school during all lunch periods. Students and Faculty will be able to purchase a Candy Cane for $1 each and write a message to a friend! Candy Canes will be distributed in your child’s homeroom class.

We will also hold a Bake Sale during those dates, so please send in any baked or store bought goods with your child those days for us to sell! The more items we receive, the more money we raise for our school 😊

Don’t forget to send your child to school with money on December 17 and 18 to support the Candy Cane and Bake Sale!

Happy Holidays and all the best in the New Year!

Halsey PTA
