True Blue Turn in Day #3: Sept 29th – MONDAY


Walter J Baird Middle announces our sixth annual True Blue Day!  This is a fun and exciting way to raise funds for the 2014-2015 school year.  Rather than selling products we are engaging our students in a fun day full of activities while teaching them about giving at the same time.

Please consider joining our cause by making a monetary donation.  100% of the money you give will stay at Walter J. Baird to be used for the benefit of our students.

Monday, September 29th will be the third turn in date.
