Box Tops will be collected on Friday, October 21!

Each Grade level has a container, so your student just puts them in a baggie and brings them to their Gr. Level Box. The grade that brings the most Box Tops in, wins a Popcorn Party!

This is a huge fundraiser for PTA, and the funds always go back to the kids! If you have any questions, please contact Julie Sluder at
