FLOWER ORDER - 4th GRADE'S BEAUX BOUQUETS
Happy Valentine's Day! As part of our ongoing business unit, the fourth grade proudly presents: "Beaux Bouquets." We are offering small "pretty in pink" bouquets for those who like flowers and a "pencils and pretzels" bouquet for less flowery folks. The pretzels are chocolate covered. Each bouquet is $4.00, and all profits will go to provide clean water to African children desperately in need of this resource. Thanks for helping fourth grade "share the love" this Valentine's Day. Please send in the order form and payment by Wednesday, Feb. 8.
