ICES Cookie Dough Winners

The top three cookie dough sellers at ICES for FY 18-19 are Lainey W., 1st place, K'Leah W., 2nd place, and Carolyn M., 3rd place.

The top seller in each grade level was rewarded a trip to Chick-fil-A in Tifton for lunch on Tuesday Nov 27, 2018. The teacher with the highest percentage of cookie dough sold in the entire school was Ms. Diane Benson, 1st grade teacher, who also was rewarded lunch at Chick-fil-A. Second grade had a tie for 1st place, so both students were rewarded.

Students who sold 12 or more units of cookie dough were rewarded with an hour playing in a bouncy house and bouncy slide.

A huge THANK YOU to the parents and community members who supported this important yearly fundraiser!
