-Our students at East Hardin Elementary will be taking a field trip on Thursday, December 18th to reward them for their good behavior the second 9-weeks. Students with five or less infraction slips and no office referrals will be invited to attend the movie. Students can still lose the privilege to attend the movie after they have turned their permission slip in. We will be traveling to the Southgate Cinema by the school bus. The movie at the cinema will be, "The Penguins of Madagascar" - a PG movie. The reward party is for students only. We apologize that parents can't come to the theater with us. There is limited space and they won't be able to accommodate students and parents. The trip is FREE and will include admission to the movies with popcorn and a drink. We are asking for a $1.00 donation from each student to help with transportation. Please complete and return your student's permission slip form to their classroom teacher as soon as possible, but no later than Friday, December 12th. Students will not be able to attend the movie without a signed permission slip form.
-Box Tops: We are having another Box-Top competition. All students who collect 100, 200 and 300 Box Tops will receive a reward. The rewards for each level will be announced after Christmas Break. The students will receive their rewards in March and April when the weather is warmer. Students will receive the reward for every category they meet. Example: Students who collect 300 Box Tops will receive the reward for 300, 200 and 100. Each Box Top will count for 1 point. Students may turn in their Box Tops to their teachers between Tuesday, December 9th and Friday, February 27th. They need to be cut out in a zip lock bag with their name, homeroom teacher and how many Box Tops they have collected. You may turn Box Tops in to your teacher throughout this time. Students can collect Box Tops from a variety of items including food items, paper products and school supplies. This is a great time for friends and family to help support your child and our school by clipping off the Box Tops from items they currently use or will be using over the holidays.
