EGRNOW! FUN FRIDAYS
Each Friday in May, we will have an after-school sale to raise money for EGRNow! We will also highlight programs that EGRNow! has funded in recent years (Spanish, K-1 Paraeducators, Art, Music, Physical Education and the Performing Arts Center). Thank you for being 100% ALL IN for our schools!
Friday, MAY 19 - Second Paleta sale highlighting the art and music program. If we sold out of the 350 paletas before you could get one at the last sale, no worries! Senora Vicente will have 500 for us this time around!
Friday, MAY 26 - Fruit sale highlighting the physical education program.
Jersey Mike’s presented Breton Downs with a check for $634.53, which will be donated to the EGRNow! Campaign along with another $600 from the bake sale and paleta sale! Thank you for your donations!
