K-Cup Collection Update


A huge thank you to everyone who donated k-cups for our 6th Grade science collection.  We collected 1000 + K-Cups and were able to recycle all of them.  It was so successful that we are going to continue collecting them all year long.  Please continue to send them to Room 8 or the library and we we will take it from there.  We appreciate your support!  Katie Chivers and KIm Carter.


Sister School Board Game Drive 1/28-2/1


Dear Los Cerros Community,


We will be collecting new and "gently used" board games for our sister school, Sun Terrace Elementary, the week of January 28th- February 1st.  These games will be used for Sun Terrace's annual game night in mid-march and then will be distributed to the students that attend afterward.  Now is a great time to clean out those closets and donate to a great cause!


If you are looking for more ways to support our sister school, please see the amazon link below.  Items purchased from the list will go to Sun Terrace's Sunbeam Store.  Students earn "Sunbeam" buck to spend in the store through positive works in the class and on the playground.  Use the amazon smiles link (also listed below) and you not only help out Sun Terrace, but Los Cerros as well.
