Chipotle Fundraiser

Feb 26th 4pm – 8pm

Stop by with the flyer  between 4pm and 8pm and order for the family.  Give the 2nd one to a friend/neighbor!!

We have to have a total $300 in sales in order to get 50% back so help us make over $150 in one night!!!

**Our district is a paperless district; however, because our PTO fundraising efforts are below where we need them to be for this year, Mr. Lembo has allowed us to send home a papaer flyer for the Chipotle fundraiser.  We hope that this is a big incentive for you to attend!

Eisenhower – St. Baldrick’s

BRIDGEWATER-RARITAN SCHOOLS ARE SHAVING THE WAY  TO CONQUER KIDS’ CANCER  &
HONORING AN ANGEL:  SAMANTHA HOPF AHIMOVIC

WHERE:  Eisenhower Intermediate School

WHEN:   March 16, 2018 @ 6:00 PM

NEWS:    The selfless students and faculty of the Bridgewater-Raritan Schools will once again have their heads shaved to raise money to Conquer Kids’ Cancer!  Ladies who wish to participate but not shave their heads are invited to cut their hair for Beautiful Lengths or Locks of Love.

Over the past 7 years students from every school in the B-R School District have participated – raising over $750,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation which funds the most promising cancer research and pediatric oncologists.

HONOR:  On December 22, 2017, Samantha Hopf Ahimovic, a First Grade Teacher at Van Holten Elementary School, became an Angel.  Samantha bravely battled a rare form of cancer.  Throughout her ordeal, as she did before her diagnosis, Samantha tackled life with a warm heart and a smile on her face that lit up every room she walked into.  Samantha leaves behind her adoring husband and three young children.
With her family’s blessing, we are dedicating this year’s Event to honor the memory and celebrate the life of Samantha.  For those wishing to do so, we will have a collection for her children and fundraising activities.
To participate as a shavee, volunteer or barber, please go to the following link:
