Box Tops

Box Tops are a great passive fundraiser for all families to participate in.  Simply cut the
Box Top label on items you are already purchasing! Please remember to cut neatly and make sure the expiration date is still attached. A Box Top collection basket can be found in the Herbert Street entrance foyer for you to conveniently drop them off.  We collect throughout the school year, however, we are focusing on Box Tops for the month of October. October 29th is the deadline.  

There is also a box top app that helps double the points we earn. Download the app, add our school information then scan your receipts. If every student brings in 25 labels we have can achieve our goal of $1000 for the school year!

Thank you for your support!

Candy Cane Shoppe **Calling All Crafters & Artists**

FCMA Annual Candy Shoppe is scheduled for 12/4-12/7 during school hours.  This event gives the students an opportunity to shop for small gifts for their families. This year, we are seeking donations from our FCMA community (and extended friends) for items to sell in the shoppe. We would also like to host a few Candy Cane “workshops”, where parent volunteers can help make a few simple crafts to sell (dates TBD).
Example Craft ideas: refrigerator magnets, DIY infinity scarfs, candle holders, snow globes, crotched items, ornaments, jewelry, picture frames, etc. If you or someone you know would like to be a part of this awesome event, can donate items or have a simple craft we can gather volunteers to help make, please let us know.
