Hot Chocolate And Cookie Station: Contributions Needed


To show appreciation for Discovery teachers and staff during the holiday season, the PTA is hosting a hot chocolate and cookie station on Tuesday, December 13th. We need your help to supply delicious treats!  


Bake a family favorite, try a new recipe, or pick up a festive item from the store! We are hoping to have enough to allow staff to fill a small bag to take with them. Please ensure all items are NUT FREE. We would appreciate gluten free options as well.


Please label items and drop them off in the front office either on Monday, December 12th or before 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, December 13th.
