PTO NEWS...

Send in those Box Tops! The next submission date of March 1 is closing in fast! Please help us out by cutting the box tops out and putting 50 in a small snack size baggie. If you don’t have 50 that’s ok! Just send what you have! Every box top counts! Be sure to put your child’s name and advisory teacher’s name on the baggie.

We still have out about $1,500 in candy bar money. If you have not paid please send in the money. Every dollar raised benefits your child in some way. Thank you to all who have turned in the money owed. We really appreciate you!

PTO will be sponsoring a “Block Party” in April as a fundraiser! More information will be sent home soon!

Continue to collect and send in the top tabs! The GT kids are collecting pop tabs from soda cans, canned vegetables or fruits, canned pet food etc. These students will be attending the Pop Tab Mania event this spring. All profits made from the tabs will benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Little Rock! Help CMSS win!!!
