Pre-Order Kona Ice for the Picnic

Families may purchase additional Kona cups for non-Schell students/staff at a price of $3.50 per 9 oz cup. 

All Kona Ice cups MUST be pre-ordered through the Schell PTA website. Orders cannot be placed at the time of the event. This is a Kona Ice policy, not the PTA.
