Dear Best Parents, Families and Friends,

Over the years it has become a tradition at W.R. Best that we have our famous Themed Baskets, which have been an important fundraising event within the school community. These baskets help raise funds for classroom manipulatives, supplies and most of all student “experiences”, to enhance the educational experiences of students at W.R.

As each class is given a theme for their basket, we require contributions from families towards the creation of the “Themed Basket.” The baskets are extremely popular with patrons and the children are proud to see their efforts so prominently displayed throughout the school.

Your child’s basket theme is listed below with their teacher. We ask that your contribution is sent to the school before Tuesday November 8th. Parent council volunteers will assemble the baskets in time for the Parent/Teacher Interviews, November 14-18. These amazing baskets will be on display during that week for children to view and Silent Bid forms will be available for parents to place their bids on the basket or baskets of their choice!

*A few guidelines when purchasing items for your child’s theme basket:
- All items should be directly or easily related to the theme
- All items should be in their original packaging and should be non-perishable
- No food or beverage that contains alcohol
- Cash donations are also accepted, which will be used to purchase items or
packaging supplies
