We are looking forward to putting on some physically distanced fundraisers this term. The teachers are supporting us in the Card Project, so look out for the artwork and preview card coming home for ordering in time for Christmas. We will be running a second “Samosa” fundraiser in October, and order forms will go home shortly. In the works are Purdy’s, Christmas planters/poinsettias, and perhaps a family photo fundraiser at a local studio. And don’t forget our on-going fundraisers with Mabel’s Labels, and Cob’s Bread at Park & Tilford (just mention Boundary Elementary!)
