The Lymphoma and Leukemia Society Fundraiser is Coming!!
Penny Wars are coming!

Penny Wars start on Monday, February 24th, and will go on until the end of our Spring STEM Festival on March 7th. Listed below is how the point system works. Remember that you want the pennies for your own class bucket and the silver change and dollars to put in other classroom buckets!

Penny War Point System:

Pennies = +1 point/per penny
Nickels = -5 points/per nickel
Dimes = -10 points/per dime
Quarters = -25 points/per quarter
$1 bills = -100points/dollar

*If you bring in coins that are already rolled we will double the point value. For example, if you bring a roll of 50 pennies we will count that as 100 points! If you bring a roll of quarters we will count that as -2,000 points!

All money raised goes to The Lymphoma and Leukemia Society and will be used to help families in Arizona.  The class that wins, will receive a pasta party from Olive Garden!

United States Census 2020

The U.S. Constitution requires that each decade a census, or count, is taken of America’s population. This year’s Census will start in mid-March, and we hope that you will take the time to respond so that we can get an accurate count of our community. Census data serves as the basis for distributing federal funding to schools, and helps us plan for future community needs. This year for the first time, you will be able to self-respond online, by phone, or by mail. We encourage you to take advantage of these self-response options once you receive your invitation to participate. Please note that your responses to the 2020 Census are safe, secure, and protected by federal law. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics—they cannot be used against you in any way. For more information, visit 2020census.gov.

Jump Rope for Heart is Coming!
Dear Parents —
 
Our school has officially started Kids Heart Challenge with the American Heart Association. Through this jump-roping, cardio-pumping program, kids learn the importance of being heart-healthy while fundraising to help kids with special hearts. We are also challenging each student to improve their health and better their character by choosing to Move More, Be Kind, or Be Ready. Students can select their challenge by joining our online team or download the FREE Kids Heart Challenge app to get started. Just for taking the challenge, your child will earn the Kids Heart Challenge wristband!
 
And have you met the Heart Heroes yet? Each Heart Hero has a special message to keep our students’ hearts happy and healthy! Students can earn members of the Heart Heroes when they raise life-saving donations. When your student received their first online donation, they’ll Perrie and Knox!
 
We are so excited about our upcoming Kids Heart Challenge event! Not only are we building happy and healthier students, but our school will receive gift certificates for PE equipment based on how much we raise. We have set a school goal to raise $8,000 in life-saving donations! That is going to get us A LOT of PE equipment!!!
 
And here’s the best part…when we reach our fundraising goal, the students from the top fundraising class will get to slime Principal Hoppe and Coach Whalen! So let’s all take the Slime Challenge and help the American Heart Association fight heart disease and stroke by raising donations. Every gift, big or small, helps make a huge difference!
 
Thank you for helping our school and the American Heart Association save lives and help families like Alexa’s! Meet Alexa, (1 Minute Video) our Kids Heart Challenge student survivor!
 
Have a heart healthy day!
 
Sincerely,
Jill Hoppe
