Cash Calendar Sales were EXCEPTIONAL (once again)! Gross Sales: $17,270
The revenue raised by the Cash Calendar Fundraiser provides the PTA with the opportunity to continue to support Technology Enhancements, Enrichment Programs, Otis Ski Lesson Program, Screen-Free Week Activities, Field Day, Staff Appreciation Week, Butternut Tubing, and more.
We are always looking for new ways to support the educational experience of our children at Farmington River School!
Heartfelt thanks to all of the local businesses and friends of Farmington River who Donated Cash Prizes to the Calendar and to all families and community members who supported our efforts by purchasing calendars!
