Rachel and Annika were among the founders of Otis' annual music festival Owlapalooza. Keeping Owlapalooza thriving and refreshed with new performers is part of honoring their memory. If anyone out there would like an opportunity to perform at this year's Owlapalooza event Feb. 24, 2017, please contact Noel Rabinowitz or Carlo BalboniDon't be shy!

The Box Top$ for Education collection has begun!

Each class has received a collection container for Box Top$ for Education coupons. Please find and bring in Box Top$ which we submit for cash for the school. The containers will be in the rooms until Dec 11.


What are Box Top$ for Education? 
They are a fundraising opportunity that appear on many brand-name products that you may already have around your house. 


What do you need to do?
Cut along the dotted line and bring the little rectangles in to the classroom. 


Why should you participate? 
While your individual contribution may seem small, together we raise $1,000 or more a year from this program. Really! All of these little rectangles really add up. The class that collects the most Box Top$ gets their name on the Box Top$ trophy and gets to choose a prize that can be used in their classroom.


Still have questions? 
E-mail Box Top$ Coordinator, Claire Legas. Thanks! And get clipping.
