Cougar Valley Elementary holds several bake sales throughout the year during concerts, assemblies, PTA meetings and other special events. All items are either purchased or warmly baked by sweet volunteers and sold for only $1.00 each. If you love to bake, dazzle us with your favorite homemade treat. Or if you have a favorite goodie from a store that you want to share, feel free to purchase and repackage it to be sold during the bake sale. Cookies, brownies, cupcakes, and cake pops are always popular. Please read our rules and regulations below about our 100% Peanut-Free guidelines.
And don’t forget to stop by one of our bake sales to buy something sweet for yourself!
If you are able to donate baked items for any of our sales, we would really appreciate it! Items may be baked at home, or purchased and repackaged for individual sale. We’ll be selling all items for $1.00, so please package your items with that price in mind. Items may be brought to the event just before their start times, or dropped off in the staff lounge anytime during that day (be sure they are clearly marked “for PTA Bake Sale”).
In addition, if you plan on attending any of the events that are conducting a bake sale, we are often in need of people who are available to help sell the baked goods.
Rules and Regulations:
Please remember that all items must be peanut free! We actually prefer all items be nut free, though if other nuts are used, the items must be clearly marked that they contain nuts. (But peanut free is a must!) Also, all items need to be individually packaged, so that they are not being handled by anyone other than the recipient. Baggies, plastic wrap, or “treat bags” work well for this.
Our health department has approved us for “dry baked goods only”, so cookies, brownies, cupcakes, muffins, etc --packaged for individual sale in baggies or plastic wrap. Please note that they cannot contain any “hazardous foods”, which includes cream cheese frosting. You can read the full regulations and hazardous food list here.
