Donate Tasty Treats for the 10/18 Coffee Cart
The Coffee Cart is a wonderful way to show all of our dedicated staff members at Bollman Bridge how much we appreciate them each month!! Can you help by bringing something tasty to donate on the morning of Wednesday 10/18? Store-bought or homemade treats are equally appreciated, and items do NOT have to be nut-free. Our staff members love muffins, donuts, cookies, coffee cake, fruit -- anything that would be a good snack alongside a cup of coffee. Donations should be dropped off in the front office (or the staff lounge) before 8:30am on Wednesday 10/18. (Early drop-offs will be accepted at the before-care side door between 7-8am.) Sign up online at: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f4dabab2aa31-october. (Future Coffee Cart dates include the following Wednesdays: 11/15, 12/13, 1/24, 2/21, 3/21, 4/18, and 5/30.) THANK YOU in advance!!

In a race for the grade-level trophy, the 3rd and 4th grades are tied at 361 Box Tops! Close behind them is the 1st grade with 349 Box Tops. The trophy will spend the first two weeks of October in 4th grade, then move to 3rd grade for the last two weeks of October. In the race for the Pump It Up party, so far in first place is Ms. Munyer's class with 184 Box tops. Second place is Ms. Brodsky's class with 117 Box Tops, and Ms. Mooney's class is in third place with 94 Box Tops. Keep clipping and turning in those Box Tops! The deadline for fall contests is Monday 10/23. But collection continues all school year for random prizes, monthly prizes, Box Tops trophy, the spring ice cream social, and the top teacher prizes.
