We will be starting a contest for the month of October for Scrip. The class that has the most participation will win an extra recess. I will split this month into two parts….the 1st through the 15th and the 16th through the 31st. Each family that buys Scrip in either/both sections will get 1 point for every child in their family and each of their classes will receive credit. If the families get Scrip cards in both sections, each child will get two points. You can buy Scrip (which are gift cards) through the web site, by contacting Sue Engstad or through Becky or Anita in the office. Yellow order slips will be sent home in their take home folder at the end of September and around the middle of October. Please fill it out and send it back to school with a check payable to “Evergreen PTO” if you would like to purchase cards.
If you have questions about Scrip or how it works, please contact me.
Thank you for your support! --Sue Engstad ~ firstname.lastname@example.org ~ 608-385-1275
Student Council will be organizing and running the "Guess the Weight of the Pumpkins" food drive this year. Students will be asked to bring in non-perishable foods the week of October 19-23. For every item they bring in, students will receive a ticket to guess the weight of the two giant pumpkins that will be in the Evergreen entryway. The child with the closest weight to the actual will be able to take the pumpkins home with them!
