March Box Tops results

From: Kari Zhe-Heimerman

Thanks to all who brought Box Tops to school for our March race, which was a close one.
I am happy to announce that Ms. Shewchuck’s class won the Box Top race for March 2017!!! Prizes will be presented to the class.

Remember that the class that brings in the most Box Tops during the school year will win a pizza party in June — it’s not to late to bring in a bunch!!!

Here are the complete results for March:

Shewchuck: 137
Adamo: 100
Warner: 97
Fiacchi: 76
Rodak: 50
O’Rourke: 39
6th Grade: 38
Rogers: 28
Gratien: 12
Dowdell: 9
Sweeney: 3

Remember to keep bringing those Box Tops to school to help your class win the Box Tops race!

Please contact me at kari [dot] zheheimerman [at] gmail [dot] com with any questions.

Thanks for your help with Box Tops. Every little bit helps!
