The Morning Star Weekly Newsletter Vol 5, Edition 18 12/8/2020
Dear Morning Star Families and Friends,

I would like to thank everyone who donated to our “sponsor a teacher” request. Your generosity allowed our faculty and staff to have a much-deserved break from this difficult year at a wonderful Top Golf event. We are all so grateful to have parents and donors who always come through for us so quickly and generously.

God Bless,
Elaine Shott, Principal

You may still clip Box Tops and send them to school. Physical Box Tops clips are being phased out of production but may continue to be found on many products throughout the store.

A FEW THINGS TO REMEMBER...
  • Turn in your box tops weekly. They do expire.
  • Be sure to NOT cut the code off. We cannot use it if the code is missing even one of the digits
  • Place them in a zip lock bag and send them in with your student.
