Thank you to everyone who supported the recent Major Saver card sale! More than $27,000 was raised for the Ray-Pec Public School Foundation and the participating elementary and middle schools.

Raymore-Peculiar students sold 4,057 Major Saver campaign cards. Of the total, $13,793.63 will benefit the foundation, and the rest will be distributed to the individual schools, based on the number of cards sold. The fundraiser was celebrated at the April 9 Administrative Council meeting.
