Deadline is approaching for some good programs and opportunity's for your child: Beacon after school program (free offering) will start Monday, August 26.

Yesterday We had our kick-off for our ACADEMIC TEAM fundraiser. Each student was given a packet of information about the fundraiser. The money that each TEAM (Team Bolt, Mavericks, Quest, Team One, Adventure, CSAM7 & 8) raises goes into their TEAM account. Students can earn monkeys or ducks that allow them chances to win prizes. The first chance to earn a monkey/duck is tomorrow, August 20th. Students are to turn in a "Reach-Out" book with 10 completed postcards in it. They can also earn monkey/duck for every three items sold...just bring order forms to class on August 21st, 23rd, and 28th. All orders and money are due August 30th. Items will be delivered to CMS before Fall Break.

Box Tops For Education

Today I collected 23 box tops from Sams Club for CMS...that $2.30...just think if 50 other people collected and turned in the same amount just 1 time a month...we could make a big difference at CMS just by collecting box tops. My personal tip...I cut them out as soon as I get home so I don't forget them. I also keep a baggie pinned to the side of our refrigerator to put them in. When the bag is full...it's time to send them in. Do you have any tips to share? www.boxtops4education.com

Since 1996, the Box Tops for Education program has helped schools across America earn cash for the things they need. Support your school today and see what a difference you can make!
