Box Tops Update!

In order to help us expedite the box top procedures. We are sending home 2 collection sheets for you to attach your box tops to. Please make sure you check expiration dates and do not put any expired box tops on these sheets. If you need more sheets, please stop by the school office. Look for the sheets to be sent home this week with your child. We will let you know of the next box top collection day. Thank you for your support!

Recess Snacks

Parents,

Please remind your student to avoid consuming snacks that contain nuts on the playground. There are a number of students who have food allergies, of which nuts can be the most dangerous/sensitive. Although we are quite vigilant about items that contain nuts at lunch, snacks at recess are harder to govern. If a student in your child’s class has a nut allergy, please err on the side of caution, when choosing your child’s recess snack. We are not a nut free campus, however, we must be aware.
