Hot Dog Supper is This Friday, Jan. 27!
Hot Dog Supper is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. this Friday, Jan. 27, and is our first fundraiser of 2017! It's a fun event for the whole family. We have two different dinner choices ($5 each meal), raffle baskets (50 cents/ticket), and Kid Parties for all grades. The goal for this great event is $10,000! Our theme is NEON, so make sure to wear neon!
Kid Parties

  • Kid Parties are for any grade, can be grade specific, girl only, boy only, or co-ed. Kid Party themes include swimming, kickball, painting, spa, outdoor movie night, anything else that is kid-related. Get creative! 
  • We are in need of Kid Party hosts. When you host a Kid Party, you are responsible for the cost, details, theme, location, etc., and spots for the party are sold at Hot Dog Supper.

Raffle Baskets

  • Classes sponsor different themed baskets that are then raffled off at Hot Dog Supper. These baskets are a great way to raise money and are very popular! Tickets are 50 cents each. 
  • Don’t forget to bring your item for your class-sponsored basket ASAP. A list of the class baskets can be found here. Contact your Room Parent or child’s teacher with questions.


  • Meal tickets and raffle tickets are available for purchase online here. Tickets ordered online will be available for pickup at Hot Dog Supper.
  • You will also be able to purchase tickets at school this week before school and at lunch on Tuesday, Jan. 24, Wednesday, Jan. 25, and Thursday, Jan. 26.
  • BONUS this year – We are adding a Chicken Dance-Off! Do you know how to do the Chicken Dance? Get ready to buy a ticket to join the fun! There will be a prize for the winner!
