Change Challenge

We are asking students to bring in change to help the children in Flint, Michigan. Each grade level is having a competition to see who can raise the most to help others. The class with the most money will earn an extra recess as well as helping students in need.

Spring Carnival Basket

· The theme of our class basket for the auction at the Spring Carnival is Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate. We are collecting books about chocolate, cake mixes, brownie mixes, recipe books, chocolate candies, chocolate scented stickers,etc. We are reading the Chocolate Touch in class and thought this might be a fun and tasty way to raise money for our class. Items donated will go towards buying books, materials, and games for the classroom. We are still in need of items to fill our basket to help bring in money for our class materials. Your support is greatly appreciated.
