Hello Folwell Families!
Hope all of your students are off to a great 2016/2017 school year.  It's time for our annual Extreme Saver Coupon Book Fundraiser.  Please join us and help support our students in selling these books.  Look for your student's books to come home this week Wednesday, September 28th.  Students can begin selling the books right away to family, friends, neighbors and more.  The cost per book is $20 and each book is packed with valuable savings options from various local vendors. Students can obtain more books to sell, turn in money or return unsold books anytime until the fundraiser ends Thursday, October 13th.
Thank you for your continued support in making Folwell such a great school for our kids.  With your help, this fundraiser will prove to be another great success.
