Duck Tape Fundraiser - Purchase duck tape using the order form ($2 for 2 feet) and help us duck tape Dr. J to the wall during our February PTA meeting. (Order form will go home soon.) If you can't attend the meeting, we will make sure your tape is used to see if we can successfully duck tape Dr. J to the wall. (Pictures will be posted on our Facebook page.) Money Wars - Each grade will compete from February 10-27, 2020 to see which grade has the heavier jug of coins. (Flyer will go home soon.) Jugs will be labeled by grade and outside the nurses office on the shelf. All kids in the grade with the heaviest jug at the end of the day on February 27, 2020 will each receive 10 preview week tickets for Carnival! (The winning grade will be announced at our February PTA meeting.)
**We are so excited to help our sister school, Warner Elementary through these two fundraisers. Thank you to those members who attended the January meeting and voted for 100% of all money collected for the Duck Tape and Money Wars fundraiser to go to the new Warner Elementary PTA.**
