Less students are in our Spanish classes this year - and with the changes in my own schedule, we had far fewer students between mine and Mr. McMonagle's classes. We weren't sure if we'd beat last year's total of $957, which was our goal. The odds were against us, but we didn't want to let Make-A-Wish down.
|Some of the cookies on the counter - I couldn't get everything in one photo!|
|The cookies I baked - stay tuned for more on these in a future post...|
|I loved my hummus so much, I finished it through a stir straw. The Greek Gourmet makes the BEST and most ORIGINAL hummus! I think I grossed out the student who took this picture, though. Sorry, Sara!|
UPDATE: Our final total was $1072!!! You guys are AMAZING! We BEAT last year's total by $115 - and we were afraid we wouldn't get anywhere near that with less students participating!!!
Thanks to all who bought cookies, and a very special thanks to Dozen Bake Shop and The Greek Gourmet for their donations. Your generosity is very much appreciated by me and everyone who enjoyed your food!

|Cake pops from Dozen Bake Shop - these were gone within 10 minutes!|
|Pretzel & hummus packs from The Greek Gourmet in Squirrel Hill. These also didn't last long, and they were only offered to teachers!|
I could not be more proud of my students & our staff for making this happen, despite the odds. Mucho amor a todos.
