PTO Box Top Classroom Competition has concluded, but you can still clip them and send them in. PTO conducted the annual classroom competition over the last few weeks. 
Ms. Agostino's class won a pizza party after collecting the most box tops... 1489!  Each box top is worth 10 cents and together they are redeemed for much needed playground equipment. When clipping your coupons, please use scissors to cut around the edges and be sure to check the expiration dates.   Thank you!!

IMPORTANT USED BOOKSTORE NOTICE:  Due to the higher cost of replacing books for our used bookstore, we will be raising the price of a book to 50 cents starting at our next bookstore on Wednesday, March 22.  Since we have not raised our price in close to 15 years, I think we have done well.  It costs $1 for me to replace each book that we sell. As always we love any book donations you would like to send in.  If you are cleaning out unused children's books, please consider donating them to us.  We also take children's magazines.  Just send them to the main office or to my office.  Our new USED BOOKSTORE PRICE IS 50 CENTS a book.
Thank you, 
Donna Murphy, Reading Specialist.
