BOX TOPS CHALLENGE


DEADLINE APRIL 1ST

NO FOOLING!

The next Box Tops deadline is April 1st, April Fool's Day! After the last Box Tops count, it would be foolish to think Patton Middle School won't reach its 2015-2016 goal of $1200! As of the end of February, CFPMS has earned, unofficially (the Box Tops folks haven't provided the official count yet), $1,015 dollars! Thanks to all those who have contributed. Friendly reminder that when submitting Box Tops, please try to do so in groups of 50 (not including Bonus Box Top coupons). And, PLEASE, make sure to include the advisory teacher's name on the envelope or bag! For this deadline, please submit Box Tops only with a date AFTER April 1. Any Box Tops with a date before then cannot be submitted.

Update

There's been some shuffling around--but not too much--of the leading advisories in each grade after the last Box Tops count. In 8th grade, Mrs. Sordi's advisory has dropped from the top spot to third with 131 Box Tops. Mrs. Basilio's group came out of nowhere, contributing 199 Box Tops to move into second place. The new leader in 8th grade is Mrs. Cippolini's advisory with 207. Mrs. Lear's and Mr. O'Rourke's advisories remain in third and second places in 7th grade with 408 and 431 Box Tops respectively. Mrs. Palic's advisory remains in the top spot with 563. The competition in 6th grade is especially tight, with only 40 Box Tops separating the top three: Mrs. Jennings, 220; Mrs. Steinen, 238; and Mrs. Bunting, 278. Remember, the next Box Tops deadline is April 1.

URA SPRING SOFTBALL REGISTRATION


It is time to start thinking about Spring Softball!  We are very excited about the 2016 season as we are making some improvements to our 2015 program.


To encourage you to register now we are offering a $20 discount for registrations completed by February 15th.  The discount will appear on the check-out page.  Please register now by CLICKING HERE.


Perhaps the biggest change will be to our age divisions.  We have added an age group and we will now follow the standard age groups used in most softball programs.  So we will have PeeWees, 8U, 10U, 12U and 16U programs.  This change will ensure that players have the best ability to grow and play at their skill level.

We are also excited to have a 16U team that will be led by Mark Royer.  We are finalizing plans now that will ensure that our 16U girls will have a full season of games with other programs in the area.

Another change will be in our 10U and 12U schedules.  We are completing plans that will give the girls to play a much more exciting season.  The girls will have the opportunity to play more teams with a few games with some local teams.  This means that there will be a few (up to 3) "away" games, however the travel is kept to a minimum and is within 15 miles.

We know that one of the attractions of our program is the local nature of practice and games.  By adding up to 3 away games we are giving the girls a much better program because they will get the ability to play a much wider range of teams.  The away games will be in the West Chester area.  I know girls are going to be very excited!

Look for more information on our Pre-Season clinics soon.
