Letter from Junior Unit B:

Dear Families,

Junior Unit B will begin fundraising to buy the products we need to care for a classroom hamster; we will be selling pretzels from Center City Soft Pretzel Company.

Center City Soft Pretzel Company is an all-natural soft pretzel company. The facility is nut-free, dairy-free, and kosher certified. The pretzels are only made from three ingredients: flour, yeast, and water.

Every other Monday, we will sell pretzels to raise enough money to buy the products we need to care for our hamster. We have already researched what we need for our future furry friend, so all we need are the supplies. The first sale will be on Monday, January 9, for 3rd-8th grade.  The pretzels will be $1.00 each, and mustard will be 25¢. Look out for posters around the school that will contain the dates we are selling pretzels.
