            Funded with BOX TOPS

            We collect General Mills Box Tops all year round.  We have two collection bins in the foyer and Box Top Bucks collection sheets on the wall outside the office door.  Every time a student brings a completed "buck" they will receive a prize from the office!

          • School Dismissal Manager

            It is no longer necessary for you to phone the school, send notes, or send an email to inform the school of dismissal changes. School Dismissal Manager will provide us with a more organized and efficient tracking system for afternoon dismissals.
