THE PTO PRESS
The PTO welcomes 2019 anticipating all the joy this year will bring. We hope staff and students enjoyed the winter break and have returned rejuvenated and eager to excel through the second trimester. Our upcoming Wizards game will be loads of family fun that you won't want to miss. As always, we truly appreciate the family, staff and community support we receive to help make PTO-sponsored events successful and fun for all..... thank you and happy New Year!

Crayola ColorCycle Program
The PTO is excited to announce the collection of 1330 markers for recycling through the first trimester -- great work everyone!
Please continue to support our initiative with Crayola to promote the recycling of dried colored markers, highlighters and dry erase markers. Collection bins provided by the PTO can be found in classrooms and main offices throughout our district. Your child can deposit the used markers from home in these bins as well as those used at school. The markers are sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel which can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more. Thank you for supporting this eco-friendly initiative.
Box Tops Collection Drive
The next Box Tops Collection Drive due date is February 14, 2019
The PTO has set a goal of reaching $5000 in combined Box Tops fundraising this school year. Thus far for the 2018-2019 school year, we have achieved a combined total of $3011.70. There are many ways to contribute to our ongoing Box Tops Collection Drive. Clipped Box Tops can be sent to school in a small baggie with your child's teacher name/school building on it throughout the year. There is also a collection bin in each main office.
