Cookie Fundraiser Starts SEPTEMBER 25!

cookie imagecookie fundraiserOur annual Carson Cookie Fundraiser will start soon.  Your student will receive a colorful brochure and order form at school to bring home on September 25. This is the primary fundraiser for the PTA this year and we need your support. Funds raised will be used for technology upgrades at our school. We all want our students to have the latest and highest level of technology possible to enhance their learning, so let’s make this fundraiser a success!

The treats are made by Otis Spunkmeyer and come in frozen, ready-to-bake, individual servings.  Just place the tub of treats in your freezer.  When ready to use, simply pop as few or many as you need in the oven to bake.  Preparing fresh baked goodies could not be easier.  The treats are perfect for the upcoming holidays, family get togethers, company dinner desserts, snacks for sport teams/clubs, and parties.

Order forms and payments are due Friday, October 13.  All orders must include payment and must be received in the School Front Office by the end of the school day. Payments are accepted in Cash or Check made payable to RCMS PTA.   Please be sure to secure your payment to your order form in an envelope marked “RCMS PTA Cookie Fundraiser.”

Order Pick-up is Tuesday, October 24 between 2:30 and 6:00 p.m. in the CAFETERIA. Mark you calendar and plan to pick up your order on October 24.
Orders not picked up by 6:00 p.m. will be donated to a local charity, as the PTA cannot store or be responsible for perishable food items beyond the pick up time window.
