TRIP NEWS

Upcoming order dates are:  October 29, November 12, November 26, December 10.

Start thinking ahead to the holidays and ordering gift cards for groceries, gifts etc. It’s a great way to help out your tuition account!

Amazon cards are no longer the paper certificates but are now a plastic card which makes them even nicer for gift giving!

Casey’s gift cards start deducting a fee after 12 months of non-activity.

TRIP Order form can be printed off the school website if you need one.

Orders need to be in the TRIP box in the school office or given to Donna Koopmans by 8:30 AM on order dates in your family envelope.  Late orders will be filled with any on hand stock we may have.  Please try to remind your child to bring the order to their teacher or the office right away when they get to school, so that orders will not be forgotten or late.
