Box Tops for Education

The February Box Top Contest has ended – we collect $459.00 during this collection! Thanks to everyone who sent box tops in. Mrs. Manning’s class contributed the most box tops again this time – with over 600 turned in. They will be celebrating with an ice cream party soon! Keep collecting – we will try to get one more collection drive together before school ends – so we can get them redeemed before they expire.


We are excited to share our carnival with Harlan Elementary this spring. We hope you will join us on Screen Shot 2015-03-03 at 5.45.57 AM for lots of food, fun and prizes. We will be sending notes home this week asking for donations for classroom silent auction baskets – we will have these on display during conferences and start the bidding! We are also looking for volunteers to work during the carnival, donate bake goods or if you know a business that would like to donate to our carnival – please let us know.

PTA Funding

The Van Allen PTA fundraising has helped to purchase a wide variety of items – we have a new swing set that has been ordered for the playground and also a set of soccer nets that will be added to the playground – if the snow ever melts! An indoor / outdoor portable sound system has also been purchased, a new kiln for the art classes. We are currently looking at ordering something else to enhance the playground with the funds raised through this year’s carnival.

Yearbook UpdateScreen Shot 2015-03-03 at 6.15.08 AM

The 5th grade classes chose the yearbook cover (see picture). We are busying working on putting the final touches on the yearbook and have room for some more pictures – if you have pictures of a classroom or school activity – please email them to: and we will try to get as many added as possible. Pictures needs to be sent by March 16th.
