BEST CHOICE: The school is now collecting Best Choice labels that are found on cans and other food products in our local grocery stores. The Best Choice labels are found by the bar codes on these products. We are going to use the labels to purchase additional alternative seating for our classrooms. Save them for us and we will send them off at the end of the year. Please help us out in this activity to secure funds for our alternative seating in our school. Best Choice labels do not replace BoxTops as we will continue to do Box Tops as well for our school.

Thank you for your help and support in this matter.
