Flock Star Flamingo Fundraiser Final Report

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Flock Star flamingo fundraiser by sending a flock, following the flocks on Instagram, or by enjoying the flocks as they flew all over the neighborhood! This has been a wonderful way to celebrate our unique Peirce spirit and to raise money for our school!

We are thrilled to announce that this fundraiser was a flocktastic success and raised over $2,600 for our school!!!

The flocks are enjoying a much-deserved rest after a busy month, but may make one or two last appearances on campus before the end of the school year. Keep your eyes to the skies! 🙂

If you have any questions or comments about the fundraiser, please contact Megan Fitzpatrick at flockstarfundraiser@gmail.com.
