Our fabulous PTO will begin collecting Box Tops for Education next week and we need your help! Box Tops are found on various food and household items. Each Box Top has a monetary value and when turned in to school, the PTO uses the money to fund some of the special events and things.
Already our class has collected many Box Tops! If you please, take the time to cut the Box Tops off of the items that you may have at home and turn them into school.
Each grade-level has a specific theme for their scarecrows. The first grade theme is SPORTS! At school, we will brainstorm and plan a sports-themed scarecrow. We will create the scarecrow in class at the end of next week (Oct 24th) or at the beginning of the following week. If you are interested in helping out in class to build the scarecrow, let me know!On another note, each classroom at Melrose School will be creating a scarecrow to be put on display at the Godena Farm. The Melrose School Improvement Team and the Conanicut Island Land Trust have worked together for the past 2 years for this fun, family- and community-centered event...The Harvest Celebration! The celebration will take place at the Godena Farm on November 1st from 4:30-8pm.
