Class of 2017 Annual Christmas Tree Sale, December 7:
The Class of 2017 is holding the annual Christmas Tree Sale at American Flatbread in Waitsfield. This sale is the most important fundraiser in support of the Sophomore class. We have been holding the sale since 2003 thanks to the generosity of George Schenk from Flatbread. We invite and encourage any parent of a sophomore student to help out during the sale date with their student’s Teacher Advisory group. In addition, we really need assistance on December 5th at 4:00 PM to unload and set up trees. Parent volunteers receive a $5 voucher toward the purchase of a tree. Finally, all community members can help out by purchasing their Vermont grown tree from the sophomore class. If you would like to volunteer on the 5th, please contact Ellen Berrings at 882-1167 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dates of the sale are: December 6, 7, 13 and 14 from 10:00 AM-6:00 PM and December 12 from 4:00-7:30.
There is still time to place a Senior Recognition ad in the 2015 Royal Tartan Yearbook. The deadline is January 15.

Please contact Nancy Myrto at 244-5186 ext. 0 or email@example.com for more information.

We will not be able to use all photos, but the more we have to choose from, the more complete our school yearbook will be.
