Box Top Challenge

What?  Box Top Family Challenge--  Please round up those Box Tops that you have been saving and get them submitted.  Only Box Tops that are NOT expired will be counted.

When?  Monday 2/22 thru Friday 2/26 

Where? They need to be submitted in a baggie with your family’s name on the bag.  Please trim them if you can.  They have to be all together and clearly marked so we can tell who submitted them.  Your child can turn them in at school, or bring them to the school office, or turn them into Lisa Oyerly. 

Why?  Because you can win $25 and each Box Top submitted is FREE MONEY for our school!  PTO uses the money to pay for many of the programs they sponsor---Time for Teachers, Teacher mini grants, teacher luncheons, technology upgrades, Teacher Appreciation Week and so many other programs!!

If you have any questions regarding what products offer Box Tops, or any others, please contact Lisa Oyerly  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 785-231-8949.  We will also take Campbell's Soup Labels and Coke Rewards (bottlecaps), but they do not count for the contest.  All of these programs are FREE MONEY for our school and church community.

Celebrate your loved ones with books!

SMCS would like to invite you to celebrate your child or remember a loved one with a gift to the school library in the form of a new book in their honor or memory.  We currently have several books that have been donated in memory of loved ones and on the inside cover, those books are identified as a special gift in memory of someone and include the donor’s name. 

The idea came to us to also celebrate birthdays this way as well.  If you would like to celebrate your child’s birthday with a special book that can be shared by their friends in the library, we encourage you to select a book they would enjoy and send it to the school office for Mrs. Otting to prepare for circulation in the school library.  Please do not worry about duplicates because chances are if it is a new book we may not have it and if it is a classic, we likely could use a new copy! 

On a separate sheet of paper, please write the name, dates, donor, etc. and include it with the book to assist us in accurately documenting the gift.  Feel free to write your own personal note inside the book cover if you would like.

Thank you for your consideration of this special book project.
