    This year we will be doing monthly box top contests.  Box Tops will be collected the last Friday of every month, (with adjustments for Holidays to be announced).

    OUR GOALS To reach $4000 in free money for our kids. 100% participation - even if it’s just one coupon. If each student at Elms brought in 100 Box Tops it would mean nearly $6,2000 for Elms amazing kids and teachers. WE CAN DO THIS!

    WHAT TO CLIP AND SAVE Clip, save and submit all Box Tops for Education certificates and bonus certificates. Each UNEXPIRED BOX TOPS IS WORTH 1 point. The class that earns the highest average number of Box Tops points will be the winner.

    How to summit your Box tops 1.) Place the collected items in a zip top bag or on a Box Tops Collection Sheet. 2.) Be sure your teacher’s name is clearly marked on the bag/sheet.

    Bring it in to your teacher.

    A chart will be placed in the school so you can track how the school is doing. Any questions, contact Cynthia Marullo at Cynthiaptn@yahoo.com

    Dear Parents,

         Here's some important information that you might find helpful: 
    • Planners:  Please be sure to sign your child's planner daily in the box located at the bottom of the page.  Each time your child completes their homework, reads and fills in their log, and gets their planner signed, they get a sticker on their incentive charts located at the front of their planner.  When they fill up their charts, they get a free homework pass.  
    • Tests and other important events will also be listed in their planners.
    • Test Folders:  Each week folders will be coming home with your child with tests, quizzes, and other graded items.  Please be sure to sign each item and return it to school the next day. 


    • Reading Logs: Students will be required to read daily and complete a reading log as part of their nightly homework.  This is a GRADED assignment.



  • There are no upcoming events to display.
