Innisbrook Wrapping Paper Fundraiser

Once again Purchase School is participating in the Innisbrook Wrapping Sales. Your child will be bringing home the catalog from school this week. Inside, you will see wrapping paper, accessories and chocolates and more. Every purchase that you or a family member makes, makes money for our school. You can share the catalog with friends and co-workers as well. Even out of town family and friends can help!

Please make the checks out to the Purchase PTA.

You must enter all of your orders online. Detailed directions are on the white sheet inside the catalog.

Items will be delivered to school around Thanksgiving.
