We have some exciting news to share! Sam's Club has agreed to donate ALL our nacho chips and sauce, bagged chips, hot dogs and buns for our Country Fair. This is an incredible amount of support. We are sure to have a successful event with this type of help.

THANK YOU SAM'S CLUB for your generosity.

Our sponsor list is growing, so please remember to support those local businesses who support our school.

See you May 11 for the annual Country Fair.

Country Fair Auction Reveals

We don't want to give away too much, but we do want you to get excited. Excited enough to make a Family Date Night on May 11 and come to the greatest event ever. Ok, well the greatest event of the school week at least.

Here's a peek of a few great baskets we've got comin'.

This is our Gourmet Cooking basket. It comes with a new Cocoa-Latte machine to make foamy hot cocoa or other luscious treats, a cute green and aqua apron from Jillie Willie, "Families on the Go" cookbook, a Taste of Home cookbook, cooking wines and special spices too. There are a few more surprises in there, but you'll have to come to the fair and see.

The University of Utah donated a bunch of great things, and we had a couple other donors, like photographer Russ Isabella, contribute to this basket. There is an amazing picture of gymnast Stephanie McCallister, t-shirts, sports posters, a mini desk lamp and a U of U watch that will have the true Ute Fans in a bidding war!
We'll be throwing a few other tempting baskets your way so please join us on Facebook or follow this blog to get the latest scoop on this year's event.
