    To our Terrific Parents: 

    The Fourth Grade will be holding its annual Bingo Game as part of this year’s Clara Barton Elementary School’s Harvest Festival. We are in need of the following donated items:

    • Bags of Individual Bite-sized Candy – any type
    • Regular-sized Candy Bars – any type
    • $5.00 and up Gift Card: Starbucks, Target, Fast-Food Restaurants, Theaters, etc.

    Items can be sent to school with your child at any time on or before October 20th. 

    If you are able to donate any of these items it would be greatly appreciated! We use the proceeds from this fundraising event to pay for our San Juan Capistrano field trip coming up in March.
