Biggest fundraiser of the year!  The Cookie Dough / Celebration Fundraiser money will go towards improving and creating additional outdoor space for the school. We want to focus on improving the playground for the lower grades and adding additional social space outdoors for the upper grades.

We will be drawing for prizes on Thursday, July 30th, and continue the next week.  The sales will also go through next week (they'll be due back on Monday, August 10th). The online link for the cookie orders is  tinyurl.com/UHcookies.  The Celebration Catalog also has their own online ordering system. The catalog is here (http://www.mtempire.com/brochures/celebrate.pdf) and the order form is here (https://cataloghost.com/mtnempire/).  Thank you for supporting University School students!
