COIN COLLECTION CONTEST

Thank you to everyone who brought in coins for the coin challenge for Bernie's Book Bank.  The winning class from Friday and the overall winning class will be announced Tuesday morning.  

* We would like to thank Northbrook Bank & Trust for allowing us to use their office to count coins.

HICKORY POINT RECYCLES

Please don't toss your old crayons and markers! Have your kids bring them into school and learn about some great ways to help others and our environment! Hickory Point is collecting any and all crayons (broken bits, whole, gently used, and new). Crayons will be sent to SCARCE, an organization that will recycle the crayons into SUPER CRAYONS for adaptive use. 

We are also participating in the Crayola Colorcycle Marker Recycling Program. Students can bring in any used markers that would otherwise be tossed out. Crayola will take our marker collections and have them recycled and converted into fuel! Any brand of marker in any condition is acceptable! 

Crayon and Marker recycling collections will run throughout the school year, collection bins are in the school office.

BOX TOPS

It's Box Top time again! Please start collecting your box tops and scanning your receipts! To earn cash for our school, simply purchase Box Top participating products and scan your receipt within 14 days of purchase. Each box top raises money that goes directly to our school! Recruit grandparents, aunts, uncles or anyone willing to download the app and scan for Hickory Point!

This will be our final collection for clipped Box Tops so please find all of the ones that you have and send them in. Digital Box Tops will continue next year. 

Download the app here and to see a list of participating products, click here.

Please send all of your saved Box Tops to school by Monday, February 10!
