F.A.M.: We will be fundraising for Shelter Inc by selling Candy Grams. Please go to the link for the order form. You can purchase a candy gram for a friend, your child, and/or a teacher! You can pay for the candy gram with cash/check by dropping it off at the ACA school office, or mailing it to the office (must arrive by February 5th; make checks to ACA). Once you complete your order & pay by Feb. 5th, the recipient will be notified through email that they were sent a candy gram. They will be asked to pick their candy gram up from the school. Thank you for your support! All candy gram order forms & money need to be turned in by February 5th. Candy grams will be available to pick up from the 10th to the 12th in the multi-use room. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSclscUQDuKxjiXnVUnYnaxP5-N5Qltquq-ty34KQFrBZEVsiA/viewform?usp=sf_link

Pollution Solution: Good morning/afternoon/evening! Our project group, The Pollution Solution, is having a chocolate fundraiser this week at school on pick up days, until Friday (1/22). There will be a box of treats with $1, $2, and $5 options for you to choose from in the multi-use when you come pick up work, belt, and supplies. There will be a box for leaving donations and you can take the candy you pay for. Get yourself a sweet treat and support our donation to SavetheBay.org, an organization that helps keep our Bay Area clean!
