Help raise funds for the Class of 2018

From the Class of 2018:
Hi Schalmont High School Community, Friends and Family!
Help us raise funds for the Class of 2018 with this Mixed Bag Designs fundraiser! Forty percent of all on-line orders will benefit the class and help offset the cost of the end of the year activities, such as the banquet and the senior picnic. Give credit to the senior student by putting their name in as the "Seller." Every order counts and we're hoping you can take a moment to shop online and support Schalmont High School Class of 2018.
Happy shopping,
Schalmont High School Class of 2018
