Thursday, September 25, 2014 by LORI RICE Special to The Press in School

Cherrydale fundraiser orders, along with payment, are due to your child's teacher on Sept. 26. Checks should be made payable to Sheckler Home and School. Be sure to include the child's name and homeroom number on your check. Remember, selling 10 items qualifies students for an invitation to attend the Mega Event, held at a later date. Selling 30 items will earn your student for a ticket to the Limo Lunch Cruise. There is still a little time left to help students reach their goal and earn some of these great prizes.
