From the Principal's Desk...

Parents and Guardians,


I hope everyone was able to relax and unwind during your Thanksgiving Break! We only have 11 more school days until Christmas Break, and I am sure they will go by quickly. Here are a few quick updates for the upcoming weeks.


When you are writing out your Christmas lists, please keep our Shopping Cents program in mind. Order forms will be sent home in the Blue Jay Folders this week and next. Our school gets a percentage of every gift card that is purchased through this program, so it is a quick and easy way to support our school. See below for an out of uniform incentive.


Lastly, many of you have asked why the Christmas concert is not listed on the calendar. In early September, we needed to make a decision on if we could safely hold our Christmas concert this year. Unfortunately, we did not know what regulations and restrictions would be in place this December, so we decided to put the concert on hold for this school year. Mrs. Ossenschmidt and I are discussing ideas on how we can show off our talented students later in the school year.


I hope everyone has a great week!

Out of Uniform Incentive

Turn in at least ONE Shopping Cent$ order either December 2nd or next Thursday, December 9th and your student(s) can be out of uniform on Friday, December 10th. ONLINE ORDERS WILL COUNT FOR THE OUT OF UNIFORM AS WELL.


Check your child's Blue Jay Folder today for an order form or see attachment below.



Just a reminder, in addition to our turn-in days through school, Shopping Cent$ can be purchased online (shopwithscrip.com) or through our partner app, Raise Right. Use our enrollment code (A1EFFA5L1L12) to create an account and do your shopping from there! You'll have access to a huge selection of brands, in many different denominations. Your order is shipped with order placed by the coordinator with no shipping costs to you! If you prefer to have your order sent to you directly, you can choose home delivery for a fee through the Raise Right app - ship to home is not available through the website, only the app.


Another benefit of online ordering - you can link your shopwithscrip/Raise Right account to a credit card or bank account (small fees apply) instead of paying by cash or check.

Now through December 10th, they are offering bonus rebates on dozens of brands with a new surprise bonus every day.


Please note, local restaurants are not available for online purchases. Please support our program this holiday season!
