SEA GIRT ARTISAN MARKET-CALL FOR BAKED GOODS
Each year the bake booth at the Artisan Market is one of the best revenue sources and people always come back for more. Each parent is expected to make one baked good item per student. See below for drop off and baked good information. Please do not forget that a lot of items sell out on Saturday, be sure to have another item ready for Sunday morning to keep the people coming back for more.
- Drop off times are Friday, Nov. 22nd between 8:30 and 11:00 (there will be a table set up in the front hallway of the school) and 3:00 through 6:00. You may also drop off on Saturday, Nov. 23rd between 9 :00 and noon in the faculty room.
- All items are to be dropped off in a disposable tin or plate. Nothing will be returned to you. Tins are available for you on the table at the school entrance beginning Monday, Nov. 18th.
- Label your baked good. Please let us know what you baked and if there are any nuts or other common allergens. It is helpful to place your name on the item so we can contact you if there are any questions in regards to ingredients or refrigeration.
- Please do not slice any cakes or pies. These items are sold whole.
Everything sold at our market is advertised as homemade. We kindly ask that you refrain from dropping off store bought items. LETS GET BAKING!

SEA GIRT PTO SCARECROW FUNDRAISER
The Sea Girt PTO Scarecrow fundraiser was a huge success! It is also great to see the various types of scarecrows along the fence line. If you want to keep your scarecrow for next year you can cut the zip ties and remove it by November 30th 2019. Else they will be removed after this date.
Thank you for you support and creativity which benefits all the programs that the PTO supports. Hope to see them again next year.
