Also new this year, the wreaths will ship direct to you!   If you cannot pay with a credit card, you can still order using the attached Order Form with check or cash, and bring it into the office.

Got your Coupon Book?

The Coupon Book Fundraiser will start soon...
Please check the website and your child's backpack for more information very soon. 
These make great gifts and it is the Student Council's only fundraiser. 
The profits go to classroom supplies and projects throughout the school, and the 8th Grade trip in the spring.
Thank you for your very generous support of this fundraiser. 
It means so much to the kids.
Teacher Help

Speaking of gifts, if you are trying to think of that "something special" you can get for your students team or teacher, the gift of classroom supplies are always welcomed and encouraged! 
Everything from pencils to tissues and gift cards are a huge help for every classroom. 
Or maybe promise to be a chaperone at your teams dance. 
Again thanks for your never ending support.
