Fifth Grade Bake Sales

The King School 5th graders sponsor popular Baked Food Sales throughout the year in their efforts to raise money for end-of-the-year field trips and specific classroom needs. This year we are promoting an even greater variety of snacks that include healthy choices. As your child looks over the appealing selections, he or she may not even notice the changes!

The focus on healthy snacks is consistent with nutritional guidelines adopted by the Ann Arbor Public Schools. Our school district supports Project Healthy School, a 3-year-old initiative that partners the Ann Arbor Public Schools, health practitioners, and local agencies to promote our children’s health. (For more information, visit Also, check out the MLK website for updates related to the Bake Sale, including postings of recipes for healthy snacks.

The first Baked Food Sale will be on December 5. Items are priced at 25¢ each. Look out for some great snack selections!
