January was a great month for Box Tops and February is proving to be an even better month! Ms. Alvarez was the big winner for January with 209 total submitted! Congratulations!

Our second milestone is upon us already! The flyers had tomorrow as the deadline, but I’ll still take what comes in on Monday and then mail out on Tuesday since the deadline is Wednesday, March 1. It looks like Ms. Alvarez is in the running for the milestone prize – pizza party! We’ve got a few more days! Anyone can do it!

But the collecting doesn’t stop next week! We’ll still be doing our monthly winners until the end of school and I’ll continue to send in the boxtops through the summer. Those earnings will come out on the check sent in the fall.

Garden Sales are Friday’s right after school by the bike racks.

Garden Curriculum


10/28/16 The FM group really worked hard on Friday and did a great job of harvesting, packaging, marketing and selling what we had. A big THANK YOU to the other teachers who volunteered things for us to harvest. This week we sold $33 of produce. We should be able to start taking orders in a week or two to pre-fill.

10/21/16 The first Farmer’s Market was a great success!! The kids managed to organize, harvest, bag and transport the produce in just over 30 min. Then they got the cart organized and sold $37, plus recieved a donation of $10. Not bad for all this heat.


This program would not exist without the support of all of you!!! This year you can fill out the volunteer form and return it to the office or email it to fallfundraiser@wellsbranchpta.org.

The form can be found at this link: Garden Volunteer Application

If you would like to work with our students, don’t forget to fill out the district volunteer registration online form at https://hrsapp.roundrockisd.org/workspace/
