FIRST DINNER NIGHT OUT OF THE YEAR: — —CHIPOTLE - SAVE THE DATE!

Join us for a fundraiser to support our PTA - save the date for NEXT Tuesday, September 24th between 4pm and 8pm and come in to —Chipotle

(near —Meijer —in Aurora) to eat dinner! — Bring in the flyer that will be sent home via backpack mail, or tell the cashier you’re supporting —Cowlishaw —to make sure that 33% of the proceeds will be donated to us! — This is a great percentage back that is much higher than what we typically see from local restaurants - it has the potential to bring in a great donation to fund our planned programs for this school year, so we are hoping for a great turnout! — We hope to see you all there!
