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.

Glasses for Guyana

Chandler Jeffcoat is a Reagan Academy 8th grade student, and he is collecting eyeglasses for his Eagle project. He is working with local eye doctors that will be going to Guyana, South America to distribute the glasses to people in need. His goal is to collect 1000 pairs of eyeglasses (no sunglasses). There will be a competition May 5th-16th to see which homeroom collects the most glasses. Chandler will throw the winning homeroom class an ice cream sundae party on May 16th. There will be a bucket for collecting the glasses in each homeroom. So, ask your family, grandparents, friends, and neighbors to search their home for unused glasses and bring them in to support this worthy cause. Questions about the project can be directed to Chandler Jeffcoat at 801-722-5219.  Go to this link for more information.

After 9 years of running these 2 programs (since Reagan started as a school) I will be bowing out. My last child is in 8th grade and moving on to High School. I had a great time putting on these contests and being a part for the excitement. I learned more about these programs than I ever expected. I wish whoever continues these programs much luck.

Thank you for the memories.
From your friendly Box Top’s / Campbell’s Coordinator
