Treasure Jars!!

A NES Spring Fling Tradition!

Treasure Jars are a NES favorite at Spring Fling each year--all players of the Treasure Jar game walk away with a prize! Right now, we need your help making the jars! (Don't forget: the class that collects the most treasure jars wins a prize!)

Collection period: NOW through May 17.

Reminders: For the safety of our students, please pay special attention to these guidelines. Absolutely no food, candy or containers containing NUTS/TREENUTS. No recycled medicine containers and no breakable glass jars. All items in the jars should be clean, new, unused and again, peanut-free!

Where do I send the jars? Send jars into school with your child. They will be collected from each classroom. You may send in multiple jars – there is no limit! The classroom that collects the most treasure jars for the Spring Fling event will earn an extra recess.


Girl Scout 5th grade Junior troop #2555 will continue with their bag collection until May 31, 2018!

Any questions, please contact
