Class Baskets

Once again those highly sought after, beautiful class baskets will part of the Sugar Plum Fair. For those of you unfamiliar with the Sugar Plum Fair, here is how the baskets work.

Each class has a special theme and each class receives a basket, which they decorate to reflect their theme. Students are asked to bring a donation related to the theme to school during the week of November 6th, 2017.

Prior to the day of the fair the gift baskets are wrapped. During the day of the fair the baskets are displayed in the gym. Raffle tickets are sold and tickets are deposited into the container of the basket you want to win. Winners are drawn around 3:00pm. If you are not there to take your basket in person, you will receive a phone call and be able to pick up at the school’s Office on Monday November 20th, 2017 .
