Join us Saturday, March 23 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. with a rain-out date of Saturday, April 6. Be sure to bring gloves and any tools you'd like to use (labeled), however, we'll have extras on hand. Contact Melissa Greenstein with any questions. Thanks and we'll see you there!


Winter Box Tops for Education Drive
(Now--February 25th)

It’s time to start turning in Box Tops for Education! This is a super easy way to help the Corinth Community. Simply look for the Box Tops for Education coupon on the products you use, clip it, and put it in a ziploc bag. Send the bag to the Corinth Office with the name of your child, grade and teacher. The class with the highest participation by February 25th wins an extra recess from Mr. Lowe.  Also, all students who bring in any number of Box Tops will be entered for a drawing for a $10 Foo's Gift Card. We will select three winners!


Box Tops is also a great way that grandparents and other family members can support our kids, so be sure to ask others if they can help, too. If you miss turning in your Box Tops by the February 25th deadline, do not worry! We will count any late arrivals toward next year's drive. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Jill Fraley at jillfraley@gmail.com.
