Top Butter Braid Sellers

Congratulations to our TOP SELLERS in this year’s Butter Braid campaign! The Jobe, Taylor, and Campbell families each sold more than $400 worth of pastries, and the Goff family sold more than $500 worth of pastries! Altogether, Regents Academy students and families sold more than 600 pastries, earning just over $3,500 for the purchase of new TV monitor screens for the Upper School classrooms.
We are so grateful for the efforts of ALL who sold Butter Braid this year — and we are very thankful for all of our friends who purchased them!
