The only way we will do this is if every student sells 2 ½ books of tickets. As an incentive instead of the Dollar Jump, we will have a drawing for cash, crazi coffee gift certificates, and homework passes. We will have multiple winners! ALL SOLD and UNSOLD TICKETS and MONEY MUST BE TURNED INTO THE OFFICE ON MONDAY.

Those students going to Sharing & Caring Hands next Tuesday need to get your signed permission slip turned in by Monday to Ms. Jones.
