Has it come to this?
Land O'Lakes mom Vicki Paganus wants to help. Her idea: A districtwide fundraiser.
If each Pasco school sold 1,000 boxes of Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough, she told the board today, the district could net nearly $600,000.
"Maybe we could become a model for other school districts," she said. "Maybe we could get people to compete a little bit and bring in some money for the schools."
Once upon a time, the idea of a bake sale to fund education was considered a joke. Today, no one was laughing.
"I really appreciate your enthusiasm," chairwoman Kathryn Starkey told Paganus before instructing superintendent Heather Fiorentino to have her staff look into the issue.
