GS Troop 1266 will be collecting canned food items to donate to the Howard County Food Bank. Each item donated gives you a chance to win one of several gift cards!

We will also be collecting gently used AES Spirit Wear.  If you have any items your student has outgrown, we can help share it with a younger student in need of Spirit Wear.


SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR CLASSROOMS TO CELEBATE HALF WAY DAY! - It's almost Half Way Day!  At the half way point of the school year, the PTA Staff Appreciation Committee would like to help re-stock the classrooms with extra supplies. If you would like to donate items, please send in to school by 1/28 and have your student drop off to the box in the front office marked for Half Way Day.  Teachers request these supplies most often: Expo dry erase markers, tissues, Clorox wipes, hand sanitizer, glue sticks, stickers, Sharpies, Post-It pads, Ticonderoga pencils, Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, smelly markers and fun pens.   Thank you!   


BOX TOPS - Congratulations to our December winning classes- Mrs. Rolfe, Mrs. Shaw, Miss Gigler, Miss van Hemert, Mrs. Crawford, and Mr. Schoenhut!

Next submission deadline is Thursday, January 31! Let's make it a great month clipping and turning in Box Tops!
If everyone clips just ten Box Tops between now and March, we will meet our goal! Let's do this!
