The MSPA Election Day Bake Sale was a huge success! We sold out and raised over $1500 for the school! Thank you to all who donated baked goods or provided monetary donations, worked the booth and bought baked goods at the sale. Despite the chilly temps as the polls and bake sale opened, a steady crowd shopped at the table, and by the time early afternoon and higher temperatures arrives, we had sold most of our goodies! Thanks to the student council for their help also.  If anyone has a container to pick up, they will be in the office this week, Monday through Friday for pick up. Thank you especially to co-Vice Presidents Jenn Puhle and Kerry Rackey who coordinated the event. The funds will go a long way towards supporting new initiatives at JGMS.
