As a reminder, we will be closed the week of Thanksgiving. In addition, the students also have Friday, November 20th off this year.

Last Friday, Yankee Candle Fundraising Order Forms went home. Have you heard that we will receive 40% of all the sales? That is amazing! I urge you to consider looking through the catalog. Some of the items make excellent Christmas gifts. Another great feature is that people who live far away can still help us with our fundraiser. For instance, my mom placed an order online last night. Her order will ship directly to her house in San Francisco! If you would like to go the online route, just make sure your shoppers enter our school code: 990089988, and that you have created a seller ID for your child so that he/she gets credit for each purchase made.
