Cassidy_Colts_Logo_186_Outlined_2_AUGUST is the annual re-enrollment month for Kroger’s Community Rewards program, so be sure to re-enroll and link your Kroger card (or enroll for the first time!). Either way, supporting Cassidy is SO EASY!

Have your Kroger Plus Card handy and follow the simple instructions below to enroll your Kroger Plus Card today!

  1. Go to http://www.krogercommunityrewards.com
  2. Click “Sign In/Register” and enter your email address/password OR create an account
  3. Click “My Account” to input your Kroger Plus Card Number
  4. Click “Edit” under Kroger Community Rewards

This is truly one of the EASIEST ways to help raise money for Cassidy without spending any additional money. The proceeds from the Kroger program can make a huge difference to our teachers and students and their classrooms.

BOX TOPS NEWS !

Parents,
On behalf of the Box Tops Committee we want to thank you for all of your help this year.  Cassidy has exceeded our $3,500 goal this year with approximately $3,670.00.  This is the most Cassidy has earned since participating in the Box Tops Program for over 15 years.  We will have the 100 club drawings for gift cards next week on the morning news!  The box tops bulletin board will have an updated list of students who will be entered.  Every Cassidy student k-4 should come home with a Summer Box Tops Baggie.  This is for collecting box tops all summer.  Last year we earned over $1,200 from this simple contest.  Thank you to everyone who has brought even one box top, they all add up.

Happy Clipping!!

PAPERBACK BOOK EXCHANGE

Attention all Cassidy Book Readers.  Are you looking for some new books to read?

It is time for the end-of-year PAPERBACK BOOK EXCHANGE. Your child can exchange paperback books with other students and get some “new” reading material for the summer. Here’s how it works:

Choose paperback books (up to 10) that are in good condition and are appropriate for your child’s reading level.

Students: BE SURE to get your parents’ permission before you bring books to exchange.

Bring the books  that you wish to exchange to the library before May 12th.

The EXCHANGE DAY is Wednesday, May 18th  from 7:30-8:30 a.m. On that morning, students who brought in books may come to the library between 7:30 and 8:30 to choose new books. (Someone will be at the back door to admit you.)

This is a fun way to get summer reading started, so encourage your child to choose some books for the exchange. If you can volunteer to help the morning of the Exchange, please email me at melissa.adams@fayette.kyschools.us

Thank you,

SCIENCE GARDEN IS ALMOST COMPLETE!

Over the past several months, many of you have watched as an area of grass on the southern corner of the building next to Morton was transformed into a Science Garden. Well, the garden is nearly complete and ready for Ms. Fehr and the other teachers to use. Now that plants are in the ground, we ask that you keep to the paths as you explore the garden. Please do not climb on the displays or throw rocks. For those of you interested in learning more about the science garden, be on the look out for a link to a website detailing the project.
