Dear Ames students, family and friends,

A new year has begun! So far for the 2018-2019 school year, we have raised 631$ for Ames through Boxtops for Education and had a lot of fun doing so. Thank you all for your continued support. Which class will redeem the trophy and take the prize? This month is brought to you by Zoo City Treats in Brookfield. Remember to check the expiration dates on your Box Tops! If they’re expired, don’t send them to school as they do not count towards the class tally and will not be accepted. Please submit forms by February 5th complete with teachers name and if in kindergarten state AM or PM. For updates and class winners please follow https://m.facebook.com/BTFAmesElementarySchool.

Thank you Aisha Ilic
