STOP!   
BEFORE YOU THROW AWAY FOOD PACKAGING...
 
Make sure to save those box tops for the fall collection date. Box tops are due on
Friday, October 11th.

The class with the most box tops will win an Eegee's Party
 
Are you wondering which products offer box tops?  
 
We'll take them any way that you can send them in, but if you, or your children, have time to trim around the box tops, that saves our box top crew some time. If you have any questions, please email the PTO at coppercreekpto@gmail.com.  
  
 
Box Tops for Eduacation is making collection easier than ever!  No more clipping. No more sending Box Tops to school. All you need is your phone. Download the ALL-NEW Box Tops app, shop as you normally would, then simply scan your store receipts to find participating products. The app will automatically credit your school's Box Tops earnings online. For more information on the app, visit https://www.boxtops4education.com/

Good Evening Families!
 
What an incredible first two days.  I was so impressed with our students and staff.  It has been fun to see students connecting to each other, having a chance to share what is important to them, and making new friends. Our teachers have been wonderful and are doing a great job laying the foundation for a great year.   We also went over our school rules with students on Friday:
 
Have Respect
Act Responsibly  
Work Together
Keep Safe
 
Monday morning will be our first CREATE Hour from 7:45 - 8:45.  Make sure your kids are on time so they get to participate.  This hour each week will be dedicated to helping students exercise their creativity, think outside the box, and stretch their thinking.  It is going to be a great morning!
 
Other quick notes:
The first bell rings at 7:40, please have your students dropped off before then.  If you are dropping off after 7:45, please come to the office to sign-in.
If your child will be absent, please call the attendance line @ 696-6814.
Please attend parent orientation on Wednesday, August 14th, from 6 - 8 p.m.  The information is geared for parents.
 
Have a wonderful week!
