BOX TOPS The time for St. Jude's annual BOX TOPS WARS has almost arrived! We hope that you have been stocking up on Box Tops as an exciting competition begins next week. Starting Mon., Oct. 2, each homeroom will collect as many Box Tops as possible through Wed., Oct. 25. The room that collects the most in each grade wins an out-of-uniform day for the students! But it gets even better! The class that collects the MOST in the whole school wins a pizza party generously provided by HASA. Encourage your child to help find items either in the store or in your pantry, as each Box Top helps provide financial funding for our amazing school. Let the games begin!

READERS There will be an out-of-uniform day Wed., Oct. 18, for students who have met or exceeded their first quarter AR goals.
