From the PTA

Box Top Contest:

It's time to get your students to turn in their Box Tops! The Top Home room earns a Breakfast Party!  But it is early and we have until October 21st to get those Box Tops in for this contest period!  Last year we earned over $1,700 for our school through the Box Tops program. (This funded 5 Teacher mini-grants!) 
The contest is the 6th vs. the 7th vs. the 8th grades to see who "Rules the School!"  Right now 8th grade leads with 1301, 6th is in second place with 949 and 7th grade has 814!  There is plenty of time to get in those Box Tops!  A PTA representative will be picking them up every Friday through the end of this contest!


Book Drive:

The Beta Club is holding a book drive to support a school in Botswana that Mr.Dunton recently visited. The book drive goes on through the month of October. We are looking for gently used or new books and please bring them in and give to Ms.Cavender she is the 8/2 collector of books. Thanks for your support.
