Ho Ho Ho!!! Santa's Elves are hard at work!


Broadway PTO is doing a Santa letter fundraiser this year.  We want to keep this top secret and keep everything between the parents and us.  We do not want to let the kids in on our behind the scenes elf work.

These letters are only $5 each and will include personal information for each child you sign up.  Here is a link to find the Santa questionnaire to provide us with the information to create the letter:  Santa Letter


You can email these finished questionnaires to  You can put them in a VERY SEALED envelope with the code word CANDYCANE written on it, for you student to give to their teacher with cash payment.  You can also pay Online below.


The questionnaires need to be returned as soon as possible with a deadline of December 12th.   They will be delivered to the kids on December 19th for winter break.
