Box Tops Update!!
The PTSA would like to thank everyone who brought in Box Tops for the fall Submission. The next submission date ends February 24th 2017. The reward for the winning teacher will again be a $25 Gift Certificate and the class will get doughnuts! There were many Box Tops in the last submission that were counted for the school, but did not have the student or teacher name – so be sure to add the student name and their 4th hour teacher to your Ziploc bag or envelope when dropping them off in the Red Box Tops Bin in the Front Office. We want to make sure the student and their teacher get credit for their submission.
