  • Bonfire/First Dance Donation Request

    Posted by Nicole Ragone on 9/19/2019
    The Eastampton Community School Class of 2020 has the opportunity to raise funds through the selling of pre-packaged snack items, soda and water at various school activities. The funds raised help to cover the costs associated with the 8th grade dinner dance, class trip, graduation and various other 8th grade events. Over the course of the year you will receive requests for donations. In order to make this a successful fundraising year, we are already seeking your help. 
    Attached you will find a letter regarding donations etc.
    Our first two events are the Welcome Back to School Dance, on Friday Oct. 4, and the Township Bonfire Refreshment sales, on Friday Oct. 25. With the 8th grade parent committee we decided to create one Sign Up Genius for both of these events. We will use some of the items collected for the dance and the remainder will be used at the Bonfire. 
    Our next 8th grade parent committee meeting will be Thursday, Oct. 3 at 6:30  in the library.
    Please reach out if you have any questions or would like more clarification!
