The annual fundraiser at Wissahickon Middle School is underway. Students were introduced to the process on Thursday October 9, 2014. Students can build on a very successful effort last year which yielded the best result in recent history. The fundraiser will wrap up the first week of November.
Students are offering three different products this year.
1) Magazine subscriptions, or renewals if someone already has a subscription. Digital versions of magazine titles are also available.
2) Photo keepsakes are new this year! Similar to snapfish and shutterfly, those who purchase this product can create photo albums, calendars, holiday greeting cards, digital photo books, posters, stickers, and more.
3) Cookie dough is also available, just in time for Thanksgiving and the winter holidays. This year students will offer a Southern Living product with a wide assortment of cookie options, including healthy alternatives.
*People can also choose to purchase magazine titles for members of our armed forces to be shipped wherever they may be stationed. This was highly successful last year and we're hoping a similar result this year. Our proceeds come right back to WMS and have been used to help fund: the 8th grade breakfast, the 6th grade barbeque, field day refreshments, scholarships, the student-faculty basketball game, 6th grade t-shirts, the geography and spelling bees, and the science club. If you have any questions please contact the Main Office.
