Congratulations to the entire EES Community for their successful Dan’s Chocolates Fundraiser. We had a truly amazing year.
We sold 1,859 bags of chocolates
That is 29,744 balls of chocolates!
We earned over $13,000 for our school!! That goes directly to funding field trips, teacher grants, school supplies, the BBQ, Math night, Skate night and Multicultural night (upcoming on 11/11). The most amazing thing about this year’s Dan’s Chocolates Fundraiser is that over 50% of our student were able to sell at least one bag of chocolate! That is up 10% from last year!
