Annual Holiday Gift Basket - Thank You
We want to take the opportunity the give a big Thank You to Amie Tracy for once again arranging our Annual Holiday Gift Baskets for children in need. This has been a Center School Annual Holiday Tradition for quite some time. We are very proud to have donated 43 towering baskets filled with toys, games, puzzles, clothing, and warm items to the YWCA of the Springfield area. We could NOT have done this without the help of our very generous Center School families! The donations just overwhelmed us. We had 30 parents show up to help wrap and put together the baskets. The 4th and 5th graders also loaned their terrific wrapping skills and helped tremendously. We are truly blessed!
Box Top Collection - Keep them coming in
The race is turning the corner...!!! We have some new players in the BOX TOP Collection Race! The numbers are climbing and a new class has taken the lead! It is still early....but the counts are close! Keep clipping!
A few tips when clipping before sending to class:
1. Please cut the OFFICIAL BOX TOP coupon, not the advertisement for the coupon.
2. Remember to write your TEACHERS NAME ON & COUPON COUNT ON baggie...NOT student.
3. Please double check expiration date on Box top.
4. If you have a lot your sending in and you have a helper at home, please package coupons in baggies of 50. This helps a lot with the official submission package.
5. If you have a CERTIFICATES (they are usually BIG!) please send in but not in with packages of 50 coupons.
**NO NAME BAGS: 326**
Thank you so much for clipping, saving and counting! We are on track to our goal of $800! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Julie Harty at email@example.com
Also, if anyone is interested in volunteering as the 2017/2018 BOX TOP organizer, this is a perfect time to review the process of submitting with Julie and get a jumpstart on next year.
