To make this a fun and engaging event for the students, we are doing a grave vs. grade challenge.  All next week, in the cafeteria, there will be containers set up, one for each grade.  Please ask your students to bring in loose change, and place in their grades container.  At the end of the week, the container with the most change will win a pizza party!!!

As an added bonus, the school who collects the most money, wins the SOUPer Bowl trophy!  The same school has won it 3 years in a row…lets give them a run for their money!!

Purchase SOUPer Bowl IV Tickets

It’s time to start thinking about purchasing the 2018-2019 yearbook. We are doing things a little differently this year.
1. There will only be online ordering of the 2018-2019 yearbook. Leonard’s online can take payments from credit and debit cards as well from a checking account.

2. We have three price tiers by date. Prices are as follows:

$15 until January 1st
$25 from Jan 2-March 1st
$35 after March 2nd

Informational flyers will be coming home with your student in the next day or two.
Orders can be placed at www.leonards.com/yearbooks access code: C449531

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.
