Donate Candy for Troops – Dreading all the candy your kids bring home from Halloween? Have no fear!  From November 1st- 7th you can donate your unwanted/extra candy. Simply drop candy in the collection boxes in the front school lobby. The Healthy Kids Committee in collaboration with FedEx is collecting candy to be sent to Operation Gratitude who will send the candy to our troops stationed overseas during the holidays.  

Box Tops – Get your scissors ready! It’s time to start clipping those box tops! Box Tops can be found on everything from bath tissue to office supplies! A complete list of products can be found at You can also download the Box Tops for Education App to collect box tops virtually! Learn more here about the fantastic app!

Don’t forget to ask friends, family, and coworkers to clip box tops too! Once you spot the label, simply cut it from the package and send it to school with your child. For every box top received, PD will earn 10 cents to help us purchase the items we need most.Box Tops can be brought to school anytime in ziploc bags labeled with the number of clipped items inside. A gray box labeled Box Tops can be found in the school office. Box Tops can’t be expired and if possible, putting them in groups of 10 is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much and Happy Clipping! If you have any questions please contact – Jen Meggos at
