Ice cream only: $22.75

LUNCH POLICY, PLEASE READ: We are pleased to offer the following sponsored fundraiser: Wyckoff Pizza, beginning: Wednesday, September 28, 2022 and running until Wednesday, January 25, 2023. This first session of pizza lunch will run for 13 weeks.

Nov. 8, 30
Dec. 7, 14, 21
Jan. 4, 11, 18, 25

This lunch will be offered on every Wednesday of full weeks, as per the current School Calendar. This will alleviate the question of when the lunch program ends and when you have to provide lunch. As a result of this policy we will be unable to accommodate any make-ups due to unforeseen school closings or calendar changes such as snow days, hurricanes, or class trips, or student illness. Any canceled lunch on Wednesday will NOT be made up or reimbursed.

Thank you for your support!!

Towards the end of each day of the fair, fun STEM door prizes will be announced to winning ticket holders.
