Box Tops Contest deadline Friday, Oct 24

Hopefully those Box Tops that you have been saving all summer can now be put to good use for our school. We will be having a contest to see which classroom can collect the largest dollar value of Box Tops. Grades K – 8th can participate. For all grades the Box Tops will be collected in your child’s homeroom class except for the 6th graders where they will be collected in their 2nd period class.

The winning classroom will be treated to an ice cream party. Prizes will also be awarded for the second and third place winners. You can get other friends and family involved to help boost your child’s contribution. The contest will end Friday, Oct. 24th.

I will have three patterns available for each skill level.  All skill levels will be in the same class. So start your Christmas gifts now! Fee includes a hook, a pattern, and yarn. If you want specific yarn, you’ll have to bring that yourself.

JAPANESE CLASS – Wendy Ahlman:  Grades 1-8,  $35

BEGINNING FENCING – Bethany Andrews:  $35
This class is exactly what a budding swordfighter is looking for! Fencing teaches self-discipline, strategy and critical thinking. It has been described as “chess at 80mph”. In this introductory class we will learn footwork, simple blade work, how to build a tactical plan, the rules of the game and (of course) weapon safety. Fencing equipment will be provided for use during class time.
