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 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.
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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to get as many added as possible. Pictures needs to be sent by March 16th.
