Did you know? 
President John F. Kennedy created National School Lunch Week (NSLW) in 1962. During this annual weeklong celebration, School Nutrition Association members and students around the country celebrate in their cafeterias with decorations, special menus, events, and more.
The National School Lunch Program serves more than 30 million children every school day --that's something to love!

Gilles-Sweet Aims to Top Last Year's Box Top Earnings!
Fall is here! Welcome back parents and students, to another exciting school year at Gilles-Sweet Elementary School. The PTA would like to thank everyone who clipped, saved and sent in Box Tops last year. You helped raise nearly $2,000 for the school, and most importantly, the students!

The money raised, will help to buy much needed school supplies, as well as help fund many of the PTA parties and events planned for the upcoming school year.
The first contest of the year will begin Monday, September 17th and run through Friday, October 19th. The winning class in each grade will receive a special treat, so start clipping those Box Tops today! If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Simmons at Jasimmons85@gmail.com
