Miss Ellis will be collecting pop tabs to donate to the Ronald McDonald House in Cleveland. Once you have your tabs collected, please send them to school in a plastic baggie or jar. Thank you for your help and support to this great cause.


How does it work?

We collect aluminum pull tabs from any container (soda pop, soup, pet food, etc.) and work with a local recycler to turn those tabs into money for our Family Fund. This fund helps support the families that stay at RMH by providing meals and items for families, assistance in emergencies, and giving families special moments – like small gifts for children if they have a birthday while at the House.

Blue Bird Clip Art - Reminder to please return clothing if your child comes home with borrowed clothes from the school clinic.

REMINDER: PLEASE RETURN CLOTHING

Just a reminder that if your child comes home with different clothes on due to accidents, spills and/or recess mud/dirt, please make sure to wash and return these clothing items. This is very important as our extra clothing supply is very limited. You may also want to keep an extra set of clothing in your child's backpack in case they need to change throughout the day.
