Poppin’ Popcorn and No-Hassle Fundraiser Update

What a way to kick off our school year!!  A special thank you to everyone that supported the Poppin’ Popcorn/No Hassle Fundraiser.  We raised over $6650.00 for Robert Crown through our popcorn sale and No Hassle contributions! That money will be put to good use as we work on adding additional iPads for our students.  Thank you again on behalf of the PTO board, we are truly appreciative.   A special shout out to the Loomis Family, our highest seller.  Great job to everyone who participated!!poppin popcorn
