Volunteer to Give Our Top Cookie Dough Sellers a Fun Ice Cream/Dance Party!

Screenshot 2015-01-05 00.03.39Our Peabody Eagles did an amazing job selling cookie dough this year — raising more than $6,000 to go straight to technology! Our best year ever! So, now, it’s time to reward the top fundraisers!

This Friday, January 9th, we’ll wrap up the first week back at school with a fun Dance Party/Ice Cream Party for the top sellers! And we’ve got A LOT of these eager little Eagles to serve Ice Cream to — 73 in all!

That means — we need parental help!

The more help, the less chaos and the more fun for everyone!
