Congratulations to our top 2 sellers for Week 2, Avery Grady (46 subscriptions!) and Austin Fatheree (21 subscriptions!). They will get to choose 12 friends to invite to lunch in the library with Mrs. Reiber! She’s graciously donating desserts, music, and fun!

 Also, students voted on incentives for several teachers to perform. The “winners” are: Mr. Allen will dress in pajamas, Mrs. Brockman will kiss a reptile, and Mrs. Toerner will be wrapped in Saran Wrap. Thanks for your willingness, teachers!

 

 Keep selling magazines! This is our last week of sales (final turn-in day is Wednesday, Sept. 20). It needs to be a huge week to reach our goal of $65,000 to see Mrs. Klein dance dressed as a ballerina. We are currently behind our sales from last year by about half. Get those orders turned in next week! And, remember, online sales are quick and easy. Be sure to set up your student’s profile, email some friends/ family, and that’s it! Questions?
