The Brownridge Snack Store opens tomorrow at morning recess

30 Oct

Hello Brownridge,

Our students have worked very hard preparing the Brownridge Snack Store for tomorrow (Thursday). Our grad fundraising committee is selling Kernels popcorn and cookies this Thursday (tomorrow) at morning recess. Popcorn is $2 per bag (flavours are cheese, ketchup, salt and vinegar, caramel, and butter/salt) and cookies are $1.50.

After this week the snack store will be open every Wednesday in the front foyer and in front of the learning commons (library). All monies raised are used to offset the cost of the grade eight graduation and the grade eight grad trip.

Thanks! The Brownridge Team
