Starts on Monday, September 15. Students are asked to complete 1 booklet and return to school the next day (they will receive a small token for completing). School receives approximately $3.00 for every completed book and if we have at least 50 books completed, we earn an extra $150.00. There will be a drawing for a free t-shirt and inflatable robot to be given away on FRIDAY.

Thanks for your support!!



The next BOXTOP deadline (October 31) is quickly approaching! Last year our goal was $900, but we raised $1062.67! This year our goal is $1000 but can we raise more?!?  We will be collecting boxtops until Oct. 24 in order to get them counted, processed and in the mail by the 31st.  In the past you have been able to earn boxtops through the “Market place boxtop program” but that program closed July 31, 2014.  Unfortunately, we turned in $70 worth of  boxtops this summer that were lost somewhere in the mail.


•ask family, friends, grandparents to save boxtops for our school

•check your packages for boxtops

•cut out and trim your boxtops

•check expiration dates (must be after 10-31-14)

•count out boxtops into bundles of 50 and put each bundle into a

plastic or ziploc bag

•keep BONUS boxtops separate from the bundles of 50, count how

many you have and turn those in separately

•Write your family name on the bags. We hope to give out a prize

to the ICS family that turns the most boxtops in from now until Oct. 24

Contact Deanne Dekkers if you have any questions. Thanks!
