JUICE IT UP WEDNESDAYS AFTER SCHOOL!
Please join us every Wednesday after school for a Juice It Up! Smoothies are $3.00 each and $1.00 of every smoothie sold goes back to Oso Grande PTA! Please have your child raise their hand in class if they plan on buying one so their teacher can get the head count Wednesday morning. Teachers will hand them a raffle ticket so we know they were included in the head count. After school have your child bring their $3.00 and raffle ticket over to the Juice It Up table on the blacktop and they will get their smoothie. Occasionally, we have extras so please stop by even if you forgot to get your ticket.
