CAWNY has a Snack Store with a wide array of snacks and drinks, categorized by school level.
Along with the snacks and drinks, the Snack Store also offers a limited selection of school supplies. Spiral notebooks, pens, pencils and erasers can now be purchased. Spiral notebooks are 50¢; pens, pencils and pencil-top erasers are only 25¢.
In an effort to keep prices down, the Store sometimes makes only pennies on an item. But above profit, the Store is meant to be something fun and enjoyable for all students. And let's face it, it isn't fun if everything is expensive. So, again, prices were kept low.
Here is how we spend any profit made by the Store:
The proceeds are used in several different avenues to help better our school. The Snack Store is, at its core, a fundraiser. The Snack Store provides "Snack Certificates" to teachers for rewarding students, pays for the website, the app and the Parent Alert System. In addition, the Snack Store helps out when the need arises throughout the school year. So, thank you for letting your child participate!
A Special Note to the parents of Elementary students:
Throughout the years, I have seen many Elementary school students spending $2 or more on snacks and treats for themselves and their friends and I am not 100% sure that their parents realize the amount of money they are spending in the Snack Store.
As a parent, it is completely up to you how much money your child spends in the Snack Store. But, if you wish for your child to only purchase an item or two, please send in a small amount of “treat/snack money.” A small amount of money is plenty. The store offers many items that are 25¢ to 50¢.
If you don’t want your child to purchase any treats or snacks, please do not allow them to bring extra money into school.
Also, please be sure your child understands the difference between their lunch money and their “treat/snack money.”
Thank you so much!
