A few reminders and requests for parents this year:

  1. FRY’s Community Rewards – Please take a minute to re-register your FRY’s card for Community Rewards.  Our school earned $1500 last year from parents and community members that registered their FRY’S Card.  By registering for our school, it will not affect any of your personal discounts at Fry’s.  Thank you for supporting CCR.
  2.  BOX TOPS – Our student council collects BOX TOPS from each classroom at the beginning of each month.  Please send in your box tops to support our student council.
  3.  CHILD CUSTODY PAPERWORK – Student safety is very important to us!  Please make sure you if you have updated court paperwork that identifies child custody arrangements, that you submit a copy to the front office staff as soon as possible.  It is very important that our records be up to date.  We cannot enforce any custodial arrangement without official court paperwork on file.
