5th Grade Food Drive

Our 5th grade leadership team is organizing a food drive May 1-31. All donations will be going to the Neighborhood House in St. Paul to benefit local families. If you are able to donate, consider donating in the following categories:

  • Pre-K/K: toiletries, baby food/formula, diapers

  • 1 and ½ split (Ulla): snack foods (popcorn, fruit snacks, etc.)

  • 2: breakfast foods (coffee, oatmeal, breakfast bars, pop tarts, etc.)

  • 3: lunch foods (rice, beans, canned meat/fish, peanut butter, etc.)

  • 4: dinner foods (oil, pasta, pasta sauce, etc.)

  • 5: canned vegetables/fruit

*All donations are great and obviously there is overlap between categories.

The 5th grade leadership team will count donations and the two classrooms with the highest numbers (one from preK-2 and one from grades 3-5) will have a reward to be decided on by the 5th grade leaders. Thank you!

Expo Summer Garden Care Sign- Up

Expo's Community Garden is off to a great start this spring and will need helpful hands to care for it in the summer! Sign up for a week (or more!) where you and your family are available to water the garden ~3 times in the morning or evening during the week.

While watering you're welcome to harvest and snack away on our delicious fruits and veggies! Pull a couple of weeds and get bonus points! No gardening experience or skills necessary. Feel free to sign up with another family and share the responsibility or make it a fun group activity! Questions? Contact Ms. Anderson perry.anderson@spps.org


Yearbooks for Sale

We have a few extra yearbooks available for sale for $16. They will not last long! If you are interested in purchasing a yearbook, please email Patrick at expocounciltreasurer@gmail.com to purchase one.
