2.  Scholastic book orders are due March 21st!  Don't forget to order!!!  The more orders we get, the more free books we receive for the classroom!!!!!

3.  Student Council Project:  RMAE's student council is leading a FREE marker recycling program through Crayola. The gist is that there will be a box in each building to put any marker in once it's out of juice (any brand or type of marker -- sharpie, highlighter, white board, regular marker, etc). 

The goal is two-fold: recycle more and help Jeffco students get into the Guinness Book of World Records! :)  Markers can also be brought from home !!!!!

4.  I am looking to borrow games to use in the classroom, State to State and Cribbage,  If you have these games at home and wouldn't mind us using them, please send me an email!  Thank you!!!
Thank you classroom volunteers!!  Have a wonderful weekend!
