Box Tops for Education

It's that time of the year again, we're preparing for our Box Tops for Education Drive and will be collecting them in the upcoming weeks. Our goal is to reach at least $1,000 in Box Tops collected, and with your help we know that this can be achieved.

Don't forget to check your grocery items, notify friends and family who may have extra unused Box Tops about our drive, and download the app for Bonus Box Top offers.

It would be a great help if you can assist by...

*Submitting Box Tops that are not expired

*Submitting Box Tops that are cut out as best as possible

*Submitting Box Tops to your teachers prior to the following collection dates:

Thursday, September 27th

Thursday, October 11th

Thursday, October 25th

The classroom that submits the most Box Tops will win a party at the end of the year!

Sunflower Site Council Meetings 2018-2019

The Sunflower Site Council will be meeting at 6 pm in the library on the following dates: 9/11/18, 11/13/18, 2/5/19, 4/9/19.

All meetings are open to the public.

Kansas schools are required to establish site councils composed of the principal, teachers and other school personnel, parents,

business representatives, and other community groups.

Site councils have a responsibility to provide advice and counsel in the following areas: evaluating district and school performance goals and objectives,

determining methods to meet those goals and objectives,

and other areas as requested by the board of education.

Remember, the work of the site council is advisory only;

it makes recommendations, not decisions.
