Family Math Night


All Pro Dads

All Pro Dads meets one Friday a month in the Multi-Purpose Room at 7:00 a.m. for about 50 minutes. Breakfast and coffee are provided at each meeting as well as a healthy dose of humor, laughter, and encouragement.  The kids really enjoying bringing Dad to school and feel special being a part of this "club". Make a real and profound difference in your child's life.  It's free and pays HUGE dividends. The next breakfast will be Friday, Jan. 19th.  Join us!

Box Tops

Your student could win! For every 25 Box Tops a student brings in, he or she will be entered into a monthly drawing for a free Menchies yogurt. To be eligible for the contest, the student’s name must be labeled on the bag or sheet of Box Tops.
We have classroom parties, too! The classrooms that bring in the most Box Tops earn classroom parties (pizza or ice cream- the teacher’s choice). The contest runs from January to April with the party in May. Two classrooms, one from grades K-2 and one from grades 3-5, will be awarded during each contest.

Thank you for clipping Box Tops. It truly adds up and makes a difference!
