Pizza Program Continues in 2016

The PTO is excited to continue the spectacular Pizza Thursday’s Program. We will be offering a one-time payment for the entire program. This will include 20 Pizza Thursdays. If you sign up online by Wednesday, January 13th – we will include 2 free Thursdays! We can only offer this discount through the PTO website www.creeksidepto.org.  The Program includes 2 slices of regular or gluten-free cheese pizza and fresh Caesar salad, and seconds are usually always available. The price per student is $7 for each Pizza Day. Our goal is to make sure the program is successful by streamlining the ordering and payment process. We have 20 Thursdays in the program until the last day of school, and if you sign up by the deadline you will only pay for 18, and receive 2 free. This is a wonderful value for families!
Purchase the Spring 2016 Pizza Program below:
Please note that the program runs smoothly due to our awesome volunteer parents! We want to thank all of the parents who donate their time to ensure the success of this program! We are looking for more volunteers to help us serve pizza on Thursdays. Please visit the PTO website for a link to the volunteer page (CLICK HERE).  Just a few hours of your time makes a wonderful impact at our school, and it's great to see the student's smiling faces. Also, huge thanks to Fireside Pizza Company for offering us a discount and including paper plates, utensils and napkins
