Cougar Mountain Cookie Dough

Support the Syre 5th and 6th grade camp fund by purchasing Cougar Mountain Cookie Dough.  All cookie dough flavors are packed in 3 lb tubs and cost $17 per tub. Syre will keep 50% of the proceeds. Cookie dough flavors include: Original Chocolate Chunk, Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon, Double Chocolate Oregon Hazelnut, Classic Peanut Butter, Chewy Molasses-Ginger, Lemon Cheesecake, All-Butter Rolled Sugar, and Ballpark. Although some dough flavors do not contain nuts, all cookies are made on shared equipment. Cougar Mountain cookie dough can be stored in the refrigerator for two months and the freezer for twelve months.

We ask that all students return their completed order forms, cash, and checks to their teachers no later than Tuesday, February 25th.  Checks should be made out to “Syre Elementary.” We will have the cookie dough delivered to Syre on Thursday, March 12th at which time we will need students and parents to pick up their cookie dough orders between 3:00 – 4:00pm. We do not have space to store cookie dough overnight, so please mark this date on your calendars.
