It's time for our Innisbrook Fundraiser!!!
[click to learn more]

We will send the sales packets home with students Friday, September 17th and they are due back September 27th. Profits from this fundraiser are used for field trips, teacher stipends, and special programs (like Shakespeare in the Schools and Firehouse Five), so remind your customers how much they help our school when they buy from Innisbrook.

Don't forget to use the online ordering option if you have internet access. Each student can set up an onlie account for distant friends and relatives to participate, too.

It's an amazingly simple process--details are in the sales packets.
Happy Fundraising!

If you're looking for something fun to do with your family tonight, we're holding a free family dance/ ice cream social at our church on Main & Summit Street (up the hill). You and your family are certainly welcome to come! [In the interest of full disclosure, I am the Activities Chairperson at church, but I gain nothing but new friends if you come --JamieM]
