PAYBACK BOOK FUNDRAISER - THANK YOU!!!

Thank you to all the students, parents and teachers for making this year's Payback fundraiser a huge success!

We collected over $19,500 and half of that will go back to the PTA!!!

Payback books in which to fulfill orders AND prizes were distributed to classrooms on Friday for students to take home, so check backpacks!

FREE MOBILE APP: If you purchased a Payback book, remember to download the free Payback mobile app! You can access coupons without having your Payback book with you. There is an extra $10 off coupon for Chuck's Produce on the app so that's a total of 3 Chuck's coupons (2 in the actual book and 1 on the app) where you can save on your groceries!!

Thank you!

PTA Payback Chairs: Allison & Candy

Get POPPIN' WITH BOXTOPS!

Contest Deadline is October 31st!

It's that time of year to start collecting and clipping your Box Tops for our Fall Contest. Send in your Box Tops to your child's teacher so they can be one of 2 classes that get rewarded for bringing in the most.

Our top K-2 and 3-5 classrooms will receive prizes, a Box Top trophy, and a class picture in the yearbook. The top 3 individual winners will receive regal gift cards.

**Remember to CLIP them, make sure they are not expired, and send them in baggies of 50 or glue them to your game board (one per square). Do not glue them or tape them on the back of your game board.

Thanks so much for supporting Box Tops!

PTA BoxTop Chairs: Melanie and Jill
