All School News: September 12 – September 16, 2016

Magazine Sales

Our annual Magazine sales drive kicked off on Friday, September 2. This is our one major fundraiser throughout the school year. Magazine sales were chosen because we feel this promotes reading and is something most people use. We encourage every family to participate as $15, 500 of the money raised goes toward our overall school budget and helps to offset tuition costs. The remaining portion toward individual grades/classrooms. However, participation is optional. Throughout the sale there will be three different turn in dates and prizes will be awarded to students reaching certain goals. This is a fun time for our students and we hope you will join us. If you have questions regarding the magazine sale, feel free to contact, Sally Allen ( or Kari Turner ( . The next turn in day will be Tuesday, September 13.

This form is perfect for sharing on social media! Feel free to snap it and post it!
