DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know shopping at the book fair directly benefits our students and the school? The proceeds from the fall Scholastic Book Fair are used to buy a book for every student at Nerge. This program is Birthday Books. Birthday Books provides a book annually to each Nerge student for their birthday. Kids select a book of their choice from a variety of genres and authors. PTA volunteers provide guidance on selection if a student isn’t finding what they are looking for by asking what they like to read, what are their interests, etc, and steering the student in the right age range and subject area. Birthday Books meets 6 times a year during lunch, and celebrates 2 months of birthdays each time so that all students receive a book (including summer birthdays!). Book fair proceeds have also been used to purchase electric staplers for the teachers, flexible seating for the LRC, and many books for our school library. 

 

You still have time to shop! Online book fair is open until October 14. Visit https://www.scholastic.com/bf/nerge to shop the book fair!

Box Tops

Box Tops is an easy way to earn cash for our school!  We are still collecting clipped Box Tops.  These are being phased out and replaced by the digital version, but we can still submit them for cash.  Each Box Top is $.10 cash.  Our next deadline to submit clipped Box Tops is coming up.  Please send any unexpired clipped labels to school by October 25th.

Please download the Box Tops app. It’s an easy way to make a difference. All you have to do is buy Box Tops participating products (like Cheerios!) and scan your grocery receipt.  Twice a year, our school receives a check to help pay for whatever we need – equipment, supplies or experiences the kids love!  

Download the Box Tops for Education app here or click on this link and help support our school.  Have friends and family download the app also and select Nerge as their supporting school.  You can contribute if you shop online by emailing your digital receipt to [email protected].  It’s easier than ever
