Box Tops For Education- Please send in your box tops for education this week. We are sending a shipment out for reimbursement this Friday. So hit up your relatives and friends and neighbors to help our school. In the fall we were able to collect enough to get a check for $1200. Thank you for all of your help!

Ear Buds-There will be a letter coming home on Monday about requesting that your child brings a set of earbuds to school. We are continuing to add more technology to the classroom. These earbuds will be left here at school for computer use. Please see the attached (Paper copy coming home Monday).

Weekend Backpack Program-The students at Callahan will be collecting canned soups with meat. Help us reach our goal of 200 cans (That is less than 1 can per child at Callahan). Your child’s teacher will have a collection area in their classroom. We would like to reach this goal by Friday, January 30, 2015. This program helps us feed families in this town who are in need. Thank you ahead of time for your generosity. Please see the attached.
