    School Store News: 

    Help to run the school store next year!  There are many ways you can contribute and you don't have to do the whole thing yourself.  Grab a friend and volunteer so we can continue the store for our students!  Jobs include:  Spirit wear (order and sell), cartridge pick up (two businesses on Meadows Road) and Staples shopping (very fun with a friend!), Adult volunteer coordinator (meet someone new!) and student volunteer coordinator (also fun to interact with the kids).  Please help us keep this a safe spot for kids who don't have a friend to sit with at lunch or kids who just want the experience!!  Contact Susan Stohl at for more information. 

    Please remember that your used printer cartridges are always welcome at the school store.  Get that clutter off your desk and have your student drop off your used cartridges at the school office.  These are exchanged for credit through the Staples Reward Program.   Win-Win!
