We submitted over $650 worth of Box Tops this week!  Thank you so much to everyone that clipped them and sent them in.  The Labels for Education will be “Banked” until we have enough to “Cash” them in for equipment or gift cards.  Please continue to save these for our school and ask your friends too! Our next turn in will be in the spring but you may send these to school at any time. Thank you!


Our fundraiser product will be delivered to the school on Monday, November 3rd.  We hope to send it home that same day.  As far as the magazines, the publishers ask for us to allow 12-14 weeks for delivery. Which means all magazines should be received by December 31-January 14 however, the majority will be received before this date depending on frequency of publications.
