Box Top Grade Level Challenge is Coming Soon!

box top challengeIt’s almost time for the Box Tops Grade Level Challenge!  Bring in all those Box Tops you’ve been saving and don’t forget to enlist other family members to clip them for you, too.  Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends are happy to help!
Each Thursday in May from 8:30-9:00, we will have grade level boxes in the front lobby for Box Tops collection.  Please check your Box Tops for expiration dates and submit them in groups of 10, if possible.  They can be taped to a piece of paper or put in a Ziploc baggie.  Please write your grade level on the paper or baggie to make sure it counts towards your grade level tally!  The last day of collection for this challenge will be Thursday, May 26th.  The Grade Level winner will be announced on Friday, May 27th, and will win a special prize!  (For those of you who have been helping us earn money all year by submitting your Box Tops, don’t worry…yours have been counted as well!)
With our March Box Tops submittal, High Lakes received $358.80 from the Box Tops you submitted!  Help us earn more.
Get ready for the Grade Level Challenge!  Which grade will win this year??

Newspapers Needed

We need newspapers for the Art in the Box project (classifieds for the actual piece and other sections to cover the desks). If you have any or can steal your neighbors- would you mind sending them in to high lakes – and share with friends- they can be dropped off in the bin by the front office beginning tomorrow. Thanks!Newspapers
