Indoor/Outdoor Shoes

Please be aware that beginning on today, students will need an indoor set of shoes, preferably ones that can be used for indoor PE.  Students will be asked to take off outdoor shoes/boots at the front door, carry them to their lockers, and change into indoor shoes.  The “grace period” is until Wednesday.  J

The most recent Box Tops submission made on behalf of the school is going to give EPCS a check in the amount of $319.10 before the end of this year.  Thank you so much to all of our collectors of these small items which when put together equals a nice large amount of cash!

Please do not hang on to your Box Tops when you collect them.  It is sad for our coordinator when she has to throw out expired Box Tops.  Keep sending them into the school and she will prepare them for the submission sheets for our spring time submission.
