BoxTops for Education
We are so close to reaching our goal of $1,000 this year, and need your help!!  February is the last month to submit BoxTops this school year, and new submission sheets were sent home with your child on Friday. Remember, each class has the opportunity to earn prizes (such as dress down passes, extra recess, etc) and a few have already reached their goal! Please help us reach our goal and return all BoxTops to your child’s teacher by the end of the month.

Thank you for supporting your child’s education.
