Western Heights

Western Heights Middle school students are participating in the Christmas Wolfgang Candy fundraiser.

The sale of candy, wrapping paper, nuts, cookies, candies and sugar-free goodies will support end-of-year activities, such as field trips.

The PTSA has set a $10,000 sales goal for the students, which can be obtained if each student's family orders one item from the catalog.

Parents of students attending Western Heights are encouraged to read the informational sheets that were sent home regarding dates along with prizes. Prizes will be awarded to the top seller of each grade and the school-wide best seller.


Students began selling Sept. 21 and ordering will continue until Oct. 19 when orders and money are due. Pickup will be Nov. 13, from 4 to 6 p.m.

For more information, call Becky Sottile at 301-491-3713.
