There are two ways you can help our class prepare for the Black and White Gala!  This is a huge fundraiser for our school. 

First, a note was sent home this week about the fourth grade class putting together a basket for the silent auction titled “It’s a Sweet Life.”  You can donate items from the list.  Please click her for a link to the letter: BWG Class Baskets

Second, you can help our class create our Gala Masterpiece!  This would be something the students would help create at school to be auctioned off at the Black and White Gala.  Volunteers who help create this piece can receive Friar Hours.
