Blue Slip for a Bake Sale
While the criteria for Blue Slips is still being clarified, this weekend was a case of you'll-know-it-when-you-see-it. On Friday, Mrs. Stewart mentioned that Sarah S., Robert M., and Hannah P. (all Student Council members) decided to mount a Bake Sale the next day if I approved. They had already secured a booth, parental help, and a few volunteers. I agreed to send out an email Friday afternoon to solicit donations. Well the community came through. The students sold every cookie on the table (and on the extra desk in the background). They raised more than $300 to support the Student Council activities this year. For this, they deserve a Boxford Blue Slip.
This photo shows the card the students created to explain why they held the Bake Sale.
We have great kids at Spofford Pond School!
