Claire's Gourmet
Thank you one again to all our families that participated in our first fundraiser of the school year! It was a huge success! The Claire's Gourmet orders are scheduled to arrive at McIlvaine on Thursday, November 3rd. We will need parent volunteers to help us sort and box the orders for parents. If you are able to help with this process please call  or e-mail McIlaine's main office (302-335-5039) and ask for Stephanie Jensen or Andi Lykens-Webb for more information and to sign-up to help sort food items. Orders will not be ready for pick-up until 1pm and we will remain open for parents to pick up orders until 6pm. You must pick up your items on the day of delivery as they are frozen, must remain cold, and we unfortunately do not have the freezer or refrigeration space to keep items overnight. Thank you for your understanding!
School Choice for 2017-2018
School Choice for the 2017-2018 school year will begin on Monday, November 7th. If you have any questions about the School Choice process please plan on attending the School Choice information meeting on Wednesday, October 26th in the Fifer Middle School library beginning at 6pm. More information will also be on the CR School Choice website shortly!
We have Rider Pride gear back in stock!
