Box Tops

2017-05-03T06:36:08+00:00 May 3rd, 2017|Uncategorized|

We are collecting box tops this week!  May 1st – May 5th.  The class in each grade with the most box tops will get a Popsicle party!  

The last day to turn in Box Tops this school year is May 5th.  Help your class win a Popsicle party.  Please tape or glue your box tops to the back of the sheet that was provided in last week’s courier, OR place your box tops in a Ziploc bag and write the number of box tops and your teacher’s name on your bag. Please trim the box tops and make sure they are not expired.  Remember: Each box top is worth $.10 for our school!  Have your grandparents, neighbors, and friends collect them for you. Keep collecting your box tops all summer.  Questions: Please contact Jodie Warlick (jodiewarlick@yahoo.com) or Amy Sery (amysery@gmail.com).

2017 Yearbook Sales – Deadline is THIS WEEK

2017-02-21T14:04:39+00:00 February 21st, 2017|Uncategorized|

This is the final week that you can purchase yearbooks. Children love to look back on the memories of their school year, and as they get older look back on their old yearbooks and laugh about how young everyone looked! Don’t miss out on this opportunity! Yearbooks are only $30, and they are available for purchase until February 24, 2017 – which is THIS FRIDAY!

Reminder, yearbooks were not available for purchase during the 2016 registration process like it was in 2015. This has caused some confusion so we want to make sure you don’t assume you purchased one. To purchase your 2017 yearbook, visit www.jostensyearbooks.com and search for Montgomery Elementary School – Atlanta, GA.

For questions, please direct all yearbook questions to the yearbook committee at mesyearbook1617@gmail.com.
