Cookie Dough.jpg

Parents, Friends, Teachers, Staff, and Families of 

First Ward Creative Arts Academy:

Our Fall Fundraiser is about to wrap up and we are still in need your help!  Students have been taking orders for Cookie dough and Tervis Tumblers but we also have over 1,500 items online to order from including magazines, kitchen items, jewelry, and more!  

We are hoping that every family will share this fundraising project with as many friends and family members as possible! Plus….a Prize will be a VIP Tour of Carolina Panthers-Bank of America Stadium!  
What you can do to continue to help this fundraising campaign:

1. Register at using our school ID #4032082 and send 10 emails to friends and family who may support your child.  Online Sales will count toward prizes! 

2. Share our Fundraising link:  on social media and text to as many people as you can! It really works and counts towards prizes!

3. All of the important info is in the packet that was sent home with students---We are still collecting Cookie Dough order forms!!!

Thank you for your support!
