  1. Butter Braids
  2. Homecoming Football Game
  3. Saturday Morning Small Group Performance
  4. Big Cat Festival
  5. Regional Qualifiers

1.  Opening Day for Butter Braid Fundraiser is TODAY!

The Butter Braid Fundraiser started today, Wednesday, October 6th!  Students will have the opportunity to taste samples of Butter Braids and cookies after band practice today to remember how delicious these treats are before selling to friends, neighbors and family members. Making sales easier orders will be online allowing customers to pay via credit card but we will also accept cash and checks.

The funds that are raised through the sale of Butter Braids, Yumbana GF Cookie Dough & Coda Coffee go directly into your student’s account, so it is a great way to build up that balance!  When selling remember these make a great and easy breakfast and snacks for all of the holidays November through New Year’s and easy breakfast and treats for ski weekends.

Here are dates to remember:

  • 10/6 – Students taste sample and their online store goes live. If you still want a paper version, please contact Robin Gear. Students have 19 days to take orders and collect payments
  • 10/24 – Orders close end of day on the 24th.  Cash and Checks due Monday 10/25 at school.
  • 10/28 – Pick up after practice–Butter Braids, Yumbana GF Cookie Dough & Coda Coffee will be ready for pick up.

Feel free to contact Robin Gear at rdriscollgear@yahoo.com or 720-212-4471 with any questions.
