How does your flower garden look? Think back to last spring, were you wishing you had planted just a few more flower bulbs last fall? ICS is having an Enjoy the Beauty of Bulbs fundraiser!  Some of the bulbs you can order are daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, narcissus, iris, daylilies and Peony bulbs. The bulbs are delivered in time for fall planting and come with complete instructions.  Order forms will be sent home Wednesday, Sept. 10, and need to be returned with payment by Wednesday, Sept. 24.  There will be a prize for the family that sells the most packages of bulbs!



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!
