Happy Sunday, Roadrunner Families!
Did you know that WPUSD is working to increase the food service options for our students?

Students will have the opportunity to provide feedback and thoughts on the meal. Be sure to ask your student how they liked it!
Have a great week, Roadrunners, and stay dry!

Box Tops for Education
February is the last month that paper Box Tops coupons can be collected & submitted. Look through your pantry to see if there are any remaining unexpired Box Tops waiting to be cut from the packaging. Send them to the school office by Thursday, February 23rd for inclusion in our final submission of physical Box Tops coupons.
Box Tops will continue to be collected digitally with the Box Tops app. For each Box Top submitted, First Street School gets back $0.10. While that isn't much on its own, the whole school community collecting them from Participating Products throughout the year can earn enough to pay for things like software memberships or supplies for classroom activities.
- Earn Box Tops for participating products by scanning receipts with the Box Tops app.
- When you shop online or use delivery services, you can earn Box Tops by forwarding your e-receipt to email@example.com. See further details about submitting e-receipts here.
- Double-dipping IS still allowed for February. If any newly purchased product still displays a traditional Box Tops coupon, you can clip & send it in to the school AND scan the receipt for that item with the app & earn credit twice.
