MOTHER'S DAY HANGING BASKET information can be found here. (These will be handed out in classes as well this week). These forms are due March 24th allowing students the opportunity to sell lots of these beautiful baskets during the Spring Break. The 2 hanging baskets are available as either sun or shade for $25, they are packed full of plants & bloom into an amazing display of flowers & colour, as well we also offer a small planter for $15. You will not be disappointed and they make wonderful gifts for mom's, grandma's, aunties, friends or simply enjoy them yourself. This fundraiser is a great opportunity for students to make some great money towards their band accounts, about $9.50 from each $25 basket goes directly to individual accounts.
