Appelicious Fundraiser

Happy Selling!

********

The CVCPSA is holding a fundraising event selling gourmet apples and pretzels through Applelicious, a local company. The proceeds of funds raised from the sale of the gourmet apples and pretzels will go into each students individual account.

The apples and pretzels will really sell themselves when you see how well they are presented and the taste is equally fabulous!

Included in this sale packet is an order form and a brochure that includes a photograph and description of the items for sale. As you look over the brochure think about those friends, teachers, and family members who are hard to buy for at holiday time. What do you get for that someone when you want to say thanks but don’t know what to give? Maybe you want to attach a gourmet pretzel to a gift for an added “WOW” factor! You may also want to keep a few on hand for unexpected guests or to take as a hostess gift. The possibilities are endless!

As stated under each category on your order forms, each product comes with five different choices: Cashew, Pecan, M&M, Reece’s Pieces or Plain.

  • Each large apple is $12.90 with a profit of $4.00 each
  • Each small apple is $9.90 with a profit of $3.00 each
  • Each pretzel is $3.90 with a profit of $1.00 each

Sale starts now! The order forms are due no later than Wednesday October 19th.  Payment is due when the order form is submitted. Please submit one check payable to CVCPSA and include your child’s full name on the check.

The apples and pretzels will be available for pick up at the Winter Concert just in time for Holiday gift giving. They are made by Applelicious just a day or two before pick up so they are guaranteed to be freshly made for us! The apples will remain fresh for up to 3 weeks stored in the refrigerator and pretzels for 4 weeks at room temperature.

Any questions please feel free to contact us (cvchorouspsa@yahoo.com, lkipp@cvsd.net)

Hi Everyone! Since we have the website, e-mail list, twitter and facebook for the whole year this year, all of the CVCPSA officers will be using our social media. To avoid confusion, we’ll sign what we write so you know what comes from the President, Mrs. Bohaski, from me (secretary Ronda) or directly from Mrs. Kipp. Thanks!

Phenomenal carnival!
A big thank you to all that participated!  An very special thanks to parents and students that helped clean up and move things back into the classroom.
We brought in $625 minus our costs and 10% to the student council.  This will be placed in the students accounts.
Happy homecoming!
