Our Classroom Competition is underway - the first count update will be available next Friday, October 31st.  There is a drop off basket in each classroom now.  Please make sure you are asking grandparents, neighbors and co-workers to clip box tops for you!  Please note that we are NOT able to accept expired box tops - so please make sure you are checking them before sending them to school.  Expired box tops will not count in our classroom competition.

Our next clipping opportunity is Tuesday, October 28th, in the teacher's lounge at Lincoln.  We will get started at 9am and wrap up by 10:30am - you are welcome to join us for the entire time or come and go as needed.  Any help you can offer is much appreciated!
