Scoreboard Bake Sale Fundraiser
As you may have already heard, the Minnesota State High School League has implemented the regulation of a shot clock for varsity basketball. That means we need to update our scoreboards! ILS Athletics will be hosting a bake sale on Sunday, May 15 after the 10:00am service to raise funds for the new scoreboards.

All parents of athletes are asked to donate one (or more!) batch/pan/loaf of baked goods for each of their children who is a student athlete. Non-athlete parents who just want to support ILS Athletics are more than welcome to donate baked goods, as well.

Please have baked goods turned into the school office or church kitchen by 3:15pm on Friday, May 13. Please either use disposable pans, or have your pan clearly marked with your name so that it can be returned to you.

The bake sale will take place after church in the cafeteria on Sunday, May 15 during the Art Show.

Direct any questions to Amanda Harris (secretary@ilsk-12.org) or Marie Casto (marie.casto@ilsk-12.org).

Thanks for your support!
