BOX TOPS – Our goal this year for 2016-2017 is $1000.00, this is actual cash money that comes to the school. Every box top is worth $.10, which I know that does not seem like a lot but if every kid brought in 10 or 25 box tops that does add up.
We are going to collect Box Tops a few ways this year
1) Your child can turn them in to their teacher or give them to the office.
2) Drop them off at the office or in a Box Tops Drop Box.
The first deadline is November 1st. So bring in all the saved Tops from this summer and keep in mind all the products you have in your cabinets with Box Tops.

 

MOOOLA FOR MILK CAPS – All you have to do is send in all your milk caps from milk products that are delivered through your home delivery service with Longmont Dairy.
Pretty easy and you don’t have to bother anyone unless you want their milk caps.  Each cap is worth $.05 cash money.

 

DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET – Friday afternoons at 3:00pm in the church to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet for our country, church and school.  Everyone from parents, parishioners, students, teachers and staff are invited to join us.  Shawn Schadler will lead us and he has handouts and rosaries, so all we need is you!  This takes 10 minutes and can work miracles, please join us!
