Please consider dining in or getting take-out with your family, friends, and co-workers on Oct. 6.


Clip and Save Box Tops for Our Schools: We are again collecting Box Tops for Education coupons for our schools this year. They can be found on many products you buy for your family. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents, and our goal is to earn $2,000 this school year. Invite family, friends, and co-workers to clip Box Tops for our schools, too! Black wooden boxes are outside each school office, to place your clipped Box Tops. Please submit your Box Tops in either an envelope or a sandwich baggie, thank you! Questions? Contact Jean Powell at jmpowl@aol.com. FYI: the Labels for Education program (found on Campbell Soup cans, etc.) was discontinued as of July 2016. There is no need to clip these or send them in with Box Tops.
