JMS Coin Drive!

The battle is on during A, B, and C lunches starting today through Friday, February 7th. Remember that any dollar bills placed in jars will deduct from the coinage already earned (1-dollar bill = 100 cents, 20-dollar bill = 2, 000 cents). Get strategic, people, and help us fundraise for some incredible service opportunities! The top two jars with the highest amount accumulated at the end of the two weeks will win those teachers a wild activity to partake in for you LIVE! Have fun and donate!

Plastic Bags Needed! If you have extra plastic shopping bags at home, please bring them to Mrs. Swalve’s classroom #109. Plastic bags will be used for a variety of activities in our school and for our community. We will be collecting bags through Wednesday, March 5th.  Thank you!

Please contact Mrs. Swalve if you have questions or concerns.

Thank you for your help!
