FINAL BOX TOPS CHALLENGE REMINDER!

Wednesday, May 25, is the final day.


All Box Tops must be submitted at the Main Office by the end of the day! The winning advisory in each grade will be treated to an ice cream sundae party. Students from the overall winning advisory will receive special prizes...to be determined!


In 6th grade, Mrs. Jennings' advisory remains in 3rd place with 300. Mrs. Bunting's group is barely holding on to the 2nd spot with 303. And Mr. Baumgardner's advisory has jumped from 7th place to first with an even 400 Box Tops.


The top three places in 7th grade have not changed, but the gap between 1st and 2nd place is decreasing rapidly. Mrs. Lear's advisory remains in 3rd place with 456. Mr. O'Rourke's students have submitted 683 to maintain 2nd place. And Mrs. Palic still leads with 731 Box Tops.


For the 8th grade, Mrs. Remphrey's advisory has moved into 3rd place with 200 Box Tops, barely trailing Mr. Cippolini's 207. Mrs. Basilio's advisory is the leader heading into the final weeks with 367 Box Tops.


Remember...the deadline is Wednesday, May 25. The winner will be announced after Memorial Day. Friendly reminder to separate the Box Tops into groups of 50 if possible and, most importantly, write the advisory teacher's name on the envelope or plastic bag!  Thank you!
