I want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who sent in box tops! We collected 1,228 this round!! This was the shortest contest period but we still did good. The classroom totals were very close!!  The top three classes that won an ice cream party are: 1st Place: Mrs. Kemp = 357 box tops

2nd Place: Ms. Stresow = 213 box tops

3rd Place: Mrs. Bolf = 123 box tops

Remember that our goal for the year is 15,000 boxtops ($1500) so keep sending them in to help us reach it. We STILL need 6,900 box tops to go! I know we can do it! The 4th and FINAL classroom contest starts February 15 and goes until May 15th! The race is on!! Call your aunts, uncles, and grandparents to have them send them ASAP!!!    Thanks,  Mandy Stone

From the School Nurse:
This has been an extremely tough year for sickness. Please review the following helpful tips:

Should I keep my child home?
Does your child have: 
Fever of 100° F or higher?   __Yes      __No 
(Take the child’s temperature before giving him/her fever-reducing medicine, like Tylenol.) 
Sore throat?      __Yes      __No 
Cough?      __Yes      __No

 ▪ If you checked “yes” for fever AND one of the other symptoms, keep your child home for at least 24 hours after his or her fever is gone without fever-reducing medicine. For many children this will be 5 to 7 days. Your child should feel well enough to participate in school before returning. If you have questions about your child’s health or symptoms, call your child’s doctor or clinic.


 When you report your child’s absence please indicate if your child has a fever of 100 degrees or more, including a cough and/or sore throat.
