Pittsburgh Linden Newsletter, January-February 2015
Box Tops Collection
Through February 20, 2015
Start clipping for great class prizes! Prizes will be given to the three classes collecting the most box tops.
Box Tops are an easy way to earn money for Linden to support educational and recreational activities for the kids. Check those packages in the pantry. If there’s a Box Top logo, clip it and bring it to school. For every Box Top collected, Linden receives 10 cents.
We have nearly 400 kids at Linden. If every child brought in 10 Box Tops, the school would earn $400. If every child brought in 25 Box Tops, the total would be $1000! So, spread the word — ask your neighbors, friends, and family if they have Box Tops!
Simply send the Box Tops to school with your child to turn in to their homeroom teacher. If you drop them at the main office instead, be sure to label with your child’s name and homeroom number.
Faschingsfest is the German version of Mardi Gras. Linden will have a school-wide celebration (German and Mandarin students) on Thursday, February 12. We need volunteers from 1:30 until 3:30 p.m. to help serve snacks and to clean up in between groups in the cafeteria. Please sign up at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4eacad29a6fe3-faschingfest2 to help out at this fun Linden tradition!
Linden’s Scholastic Book Fair (December 1-5) and the Winter Concert (December 3) will be here before you know it and along with these fantastic events that enrich our kids at school comes the need for dedicated adults to volunteer and support them! We hope you’ll sign up for a spot or two (or more if you have the time!) to help make these events fun for all the children at Linden.
We need your help! Sign up at: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0e4eacad29a6fe3-scholastic2
