They say no child left behind,How many years are the poor kids in school going too be left out because they are poor?I will not support this fund raiser again,We bought alot of it only to find out all the kids didn't get to go see the motorcycles in the gym.Shame on you PES.What do you think this is teaching the kids?That its OK to not include the less fortunate.SHAME SHAME
I was disappointed as well when my daughter came home and said that not everyone got to attend the assembly/show. It seems that all of the schools are inundated with fundraisers, one right after another. We buy occasionally but I have been disappointed in the cheap quality items being sold at inflated prices. In exchange for selling some of this stuff, the kids are given cheap objects that tend to break within hours or days. But this fundraiser left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Punish students whose parents didn't want to hit up co workers once again for over priced cookie dough. That was a really pitiful move on the folks in charge of this fundraiser. I am really saddened for the kids that were left out. Kind of reminiscent of the times when there were kids not picked for the kick ball teams in elementary.

again reward people for not working for it? That's the problem with the country right now! Everybody wants something for nothing. If they want rewarded then damn they need to EARN it. What because you are poor you can't sell stuff? Bullshit!! What kind of message does that send to the ones who did bust their ass to sell stuff???

It is certainly not an issue of us not affording the cookie dough or other items being pushed non stop by the schools. It is the constant barrage of fund raisers sent home. Neighbors, family members and strangers get tired of being hit up to buy sub par, over priced products. When one of our children's organizations was selling Luttle Ceaser's pizzas, we got behind that 100% and sold hundreds of dollars worth of pizza. We have sold thousands of dollars worth of Girl Scout Cookies and have participated in magazine sales and Boy Scout popcorn sales. We get behind the fundraisers that our children can be proud to participate in. Over priced cookie dough is not one of those. Plus, you are absolutely delusional if you believe that even 25% of those children that were rewarded with the bike show sold that stuff themselves. The parents in most cases were the ones that foisted the order forms on co workers and friends. That is a case if rewarding a child for something they didn't do as well. I am more than happy to write a check to the school instead of barraging folks with junk so my child can bring home a quarter machine trinket. Good parenting is showing your child to share their wealth, whatever it may be with others. Good parenting is not the parent selling and lying that the child did for some piece if junk or a bike show that takes away from the precious learning time at school.

Your argument is elementary.

I have been here for a few years and I have never met Cookie Dough. So why are you having a fundraiser for her?

If you aren't happy with what the PES is selling for their fundraiser - how about going to the meetings and giving some feedback BEFORE the fundraiser starts. Yes - that also requires giving of your time.

I agree with disappointed , there are alot of the kids involved with the fundrasiers who has parents who work at someplace like Gilsters or TG. The parents simply take the fund raisers to work and have co workers but stuff and they in turn buy from those who buy from them also. Then one of these kids go back to school as the top seller when they only sold very little of it them selves. They did sell it to parents and grand parents and mabey to some of the neighbers. This is not fair to the kids whos parents who do not work or work at a small place with only about 20-50 co workers. What about the fuindraisers we had in school when we had to walk laps in the Gym and got so much pledged per lab. For example I get pledged from a meighbor for $1.00 per lap, i walk 25 labs and get $25 from them. Things like this is where the kids all of them actually do something for the money. This teaches them they need to do something to get rewarded for it. This carries on to the working world. Do your job and get paid for it.

What are you parents teaching your kids ??? That because someone else in class works harder... That somehow your child is " entitled " to the other child's rewards ???? Tell your child to get off his/her lazy ass and get out and hit the neighborhood if it means that much. Don't sit and complain because little Johnny's dad took it to work to help !!! Geezus Krist !!! I lost 40 percent if my $$$ last year to scumbags just like this. They redistributed my hard earnings to people that feel they don't need to get up and go to work.!!! Stop whining and teach your kids to work hard and they will be rewarded. I say survival of the fittest !!! If people can't provide for themselves... Then let them perish ... So teach your children well !!!
