Fun and Fabulous FUNdraisers!!
8th Grade will be hosting two new FUN and FABULOUS FUNdraisers to help pay expenses from the 8th graders trip to Washington this past January. As one of this past trip's chaperone recently said, "The memories made on the trip will not be forgotten and we can’t wait for all of your child to experience what our children did. It truly is a gift from school!" The first event will be held at the new Mockingbird Bar and Garden located at 217 Barrington Ave. in East Dundee on Friday, April 12th at 6:00 pm. The cost is $40 per person and includes 2 drink tickets and small bite appetizers.  The second event will be held on Friday, April 26th  at Sama Yoga Studios located at 115 W. Main Street, Suite #100 in West Dundee from 7:00 - 8:15PM. Yoga is an amazing relief from the stress of everyday life. Open to newbies and all levels. Cost is $20.00 per person. Flyers for both events will be sent home after spring break.   For more information please contact Kristie Michonski at kristiesdrmy@yahoo.com
