Donations for Cookie Dough Fundraiser

If you want to donate to the Cookie Dough Fundraiser, but did not sell cookies — you can still help! The Peabody PTA will always accept donations.
If you want your child to be included in the Reward Day held in January for the cookie dough sale, the following donations are equivalent to what sales will bring to the school:
$25    Dress Down Day
$50    Dress Down Day + Ice Cream Party
$85+  Dress Down Day + Ice Cream Party + Dance Party
Obviously, the Target gift certificates would not be given for financial donations, as that defeats the purpose of your financial donation 🙂
If you donate money ONLY, please write a check or put cash in a regular envelope. Make all checks payable to Peabody ES PTA. Include your child’s name and classroom and write Cookie Dough DONATION on the envelope.  This amount will not be counted toward classroom participation. But it sure will go toward making Peabody an even better school!
