World's Finest Chocolate Bar Fundraiser
$1 Chocolate Bar Sale – EXTENDED UNTIL OCTOBER 12. If you have already sold chocolate, or made a donation to PTA – Thank you! If you haven’t had a chance to pick up a box of chocolate to sell, it is not to late. Complete the permission form available in the front office or at the PTA website: http://www.dunlogginmspta.org/activities.html.
We distribute chocolate and collect money each day 2:00-2:45 p.m. in the front office. Each bar costs $1, and DMS PTA earns $0.50 for each bar sold. We are selling the Variety case (60 bars per case). Students have picked up 77 cases so far, and we hope to sell another 50 cases. For every case sold, your child will be entered in a drawing for 1 of 15 $10 gift cards to Target or Dunkin Donuts. Money is due back by Friday, October 12. Thanks for your support!
Would you throw a dime in the trash?
Of course not... you'd pick it up, collect it along with other dimes found to make a dollar (or even a few dollars). But that's what each Box Top is... $.10 earned for DMS when you clip it and return it to the school. So don't let any more Box Tops slip into the trash or the recycling. Keep them in a safe place until mid-October when our Fall collection begins for DMS. Stay tuned for more and keep on clipping!
