Res Reminders - Week of March 20, 2016
Parents Club Cookie Walk Thank You
 
The Resurrection Parents Club sends a big thank you to all the students who baked cookies for our Cookie Walk  at the Spring Craft Fair on Saturday, March 12, 2016. Craft fair attendees had a wide assortment of cookies to choose from we had lots of happy customers and we earned about $650 profit from the sale! 
 
Grade levels competed for an award for most cookies donated: It was a close race, particularly between freshmen & seniors, but the final winner was the freshmen! They will enjoy an out-of-uniform day on April 5, 2016 as the Parents Club's way of saying "Thanks"! 
 
Individual "best looking cookie" awards go to freshman, Anna Apostolos and Kayla DiFranco for first prize, and to freshman Natalie Rechner for second prize.  Both winners received gift cards for the Bandit Boutique. Again, huge thanks to all the students (and parents!) who contributed to the success of our first cookie walk.  We look forward to making it an even bigger and better event for the fall craft fair.
