One more week of Pizza Time!!

Pizza time is wrapping up on Friday March 31st.

The Pizza Kits are to raise money to assist with field day activities, teach appreciation events, club sports, HOSA competitions and many other ways your donations to the PTO help our school.

The provided link can be sent to your friends and family so they can buy delicious pizza kits and support our fundraiser. Pizza Kits will be delivered directly to their home by FedEx, so send the link to your out of state family and friends, too.


Every kit we sell earns $6 profit and makes a big impact.


We have one more week to reach our goal of 40 kits sold.


Thank you for supporting the DeBakey PTO!
