This is one of our fundraising events.  Donations will be used for administration of the school.  If you have anything to donate such as household items, books (especially anime and small children’s books!), DVDs, CDs, even clothing, please bring them to school (remember, these items are for donation only).   Please make sure you put price tags on each item and give them to your child’s classroom teacher.  We will start accepting items on October 5th and continue through the 26th.

On the day of the sale, please send some money with your child, about 10 ~ 15 dollars worth of quarters preferable.  We will have a lot of children’s items such as stationary, books, toys etc. Note: we plan to sell cold drinks during the sale and are asking for donations such as coffee, tea, Hawaiian Punch, lemonade, soft drinks, et cetera.
