Pizza $ Donations and Volunteers

Parents,

Our 6th grade classes will be selling pizzas during Camarena’s Fiesta Mexicana on Friday, Sep. 13 from 3 to 5 pm.  We are asking for a $5 donation from parents to buy pizzas.  Please send your donations to school anytime between now and 9/13.  Proceeds from the sales will benefit all 6th grade classes.

We are also requesting volunteers to help sell pizzas.  Shifts will run for 30 minutes each starting at 3 PM and ending at 5 PM.  Please contact Mr. Morales (gerardo.morales@cvesd.org) to volunteer.

Thank you parents for considering donating $5 and/or for your time volunteering in the booth.
