Get ready to enjoy flowers/plants all year long!  Take some time to smell the roses and support the PTO in the process!  Purchase a Dan Schantz Monthly MADDNESS card between now and Sept. 24 and get a card to pick up the monthly item every month for a year!  The card NEVER expires so if you miss a month it can be used the following year!  ONLY $20 which the PTO gets half that!.  It also includes coupons for Dan Schantz to be used throughout the year!  It's perfect for winter holidays, Mother's day or Housewarming gifts!  Flyer is attached.  Cards will be sent home with students week of Oct. 4.   Dan Schantz Flyer
