Box Tops Fall Fundraiser

February 4-22

This Monday is the start of our Box Tops Fall campaign! Please send in any Box Tops that you have collected with your student, including the student’s name and teacher. We will have prizes for random drawings throughout the campaign, for the students bringing the top number of Box Tops, and for the class that brings in the most Box Tops! Those little $.10 rectangles really add up. Every little one counts. The Fall campaign raised over $800! Let’s see if we can get over $1,000 this month! All box tops must expire March 1, 2019 or later.

Happy Collecting!

Reflection Winners

Each year, the Reflections program encourages students of all ages to create and submit original works of art in the medium of their choice—dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography or visual arts—that reflect on the annual theme. There also is a special artist division to provide all students the opportunity to participate in the program. Submissions are reviewed by visual, literary and performing art experts, and students are recognized for their artistic ingenuity in bringing the theme to life. The 2018-2019 theme was “Heroes Around Me.” This school year marks the 50th Anniversary of the program. We are honored to announce our Reflections Award winners.
