Dear Parents and Students,

Our school is collecting box tops!  During the month of October, we are trying to collect as many as possible. Please have your student bring them to the office and I will mail them in by November 1st.  We will then receive a check in December.  I have attached a form for your use if that makes it easier for you to collect.collectionsheet_seeit_clipit[1].pdf
