D.E.A.R.

A morning initiative called D.E.A.R. TIME will start your child's day.  During morning line up students will have the opportunity to read something of their own choice for fun.  Taking time to read will expose students to the written word and develop their reading and writing skills.  Parents can help empower their children by providing them with a book, newspaper, magazine etc. to get their morning started off right!

CLIP BOX TOPS
We all shop for groceries, sometimes two or three times a week. Now turn those shopping trips into easy cash for your school.  Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products like Cheerios®, Hamburger Helper®and Kleenex®in almost every aisle of the store. All you need to do is clip and send them in. Each one is worth 10¢ for our school!  Use the following collection sheets to keep track of your box tops. For more information go to http://www.boxtops4education.com/
