We would like to congratulate all of the students who participated in the district science fair.  It was the first time our school had participated in quite a long time, and the students did an incredible job with their experiments!

We also want to remind you of our continued collection of Box Tops.  Each Box Top is equal to 10 cents returned to our school.  Please cut them out and send them in!
