We were in the top 10 for t-shirt and banner.
 
 I was so proud of all of the kids and want to thank all of you that chaperoned, volunteered, and helped make this the most successful competition to date!  Our performances (academic and musical), artwork, living literature design, banner, and t-shirt designs were terrific, and there is not a single event that I felt did not represent us well.  It was just a LOT of competition with over 10,000 students and schools from across the state!

BOX TOPS
Box Tops collection will be the first Tuesday of every month. Click here for a collection sheet!

 
Box Tops reminder:
When turning in your Box Tops, make sure that you put your teacher's name on the bag or envelope so your class will get credit toward the monthly prize!
