Cookie Dough Fundraiser
Thank you to everyone who supported our Cookie Dough fundraiser!  We are waiting for final figures but we happy to announce we raised close to $4800 to support purchasing new gym equipment and teacher requests. 

Cookie Dough PICK UP will be held March 14th between 230-530.  Please mark this on your calendar as the school does not have a refrigerator to store orders.

We are looking for a few volunteers to organize the delivery and pick up starting at 1pm.  If you can help, please email westroyaltyhs@gmail.com.
