  • Box Tops 
    We raised $1,179.70 in our last rally!  The students will celebrate our successful box top rally with an extra recess in April. Thank you so much for collecting, trimming and sending in the box tops.  We will send in one more submission as the school years ends.  You may turn in your box tops at any time - and save them over the summer!  Please join us at a PTO meeting on the second Monday of the month or visit the PTO link to see how the money we raise with the box tops is spent. Your extra efforts are really appreciated!
