Please remember, the deadline for SPRING BOX TOPS is Friday, May 8, 2015. Every little box top counts. The last submission we turned in earned our school over $500!!!! Please use the submission form, cut out and glue or tape the Box Tops to the Box Tops Collections Sheets. Bonus Box Tops can be submitted in a separate envelope if you wish. Turn the completed sheets into your homeroom teacher. Your student will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card for every completed sheet of 25 they turn in. There is a class PARTY for the class with the most Box Tops turned in.
It’s time to pull out your skates, roller blades or scooters for the MOTHER & SON SCOOT n’ SKATE event, Friday, May 8th from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. A DJ will be playing while you skate or scoot!!!

Admission is FREE with your ticket! Roller-skate rentals will be available for $3.00. Students must be accompanied by an adult and present their ticket to participate.
We will also have a professional photographer taking photos beginning at 6:00 pm to help capture the memory of this fun Mother & Son event. Photo packages are $10.00 for a 5x7 and 4 wallets. We look forward to another memorable event and can’t wait to see you there!
Parent Council and Monticello Academy invite you to come and give to help others that are in need. We sponsor a little contest in which the teacher that has the most parents, guardians and other adults donate in their name will win a class party for their efforts. If you have multiple students attending Monticello Academy, each student will receive credit for your donation. The goal we have established is for 36 pints and we would LOVE to have to add additional slots due to the overwhelming interest. Please go online and sign up today!
