To raise money for the after-graduation party, the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) will be accepting donations and holding fundraisers. Tonight, April 22, from 5 to 8 p.m., any purchases made by Shawnee Mission East students at the Chipotle at 91st St. and Metcalf Ave. will be contributing to the fund.
To contribute to the donation, students should mention that they are participating in the SM East fundraiser at the register and show the cashier the picture below.
Chipotle will be giving a 50 percent donation of the proceeds to the after-graduation fund. However, the Chipotle fundraiser will not cover all of the expenses, so a second fundraiser will be held at Chick-fil-A later this month.
“Were 100 percent dependent on everyone in the East community to donate,” PTA member Liz Maday said.
