Escrip Challenge Deadline Extended – Will Room 5 Or 14 Be Next To Acheive The Goal?


We’ve extended the deadline for the eScrip Challenge! Every class that achieves 75% participation in the eScrip program by February 15th will be a winner. Each child in the class will receive a “brag bag” prize – a reusable tote bag personalized for the Challenge with special goodies inside. Room 6 achieved the goal in November. Rooms 5 and 14 appear to be next in line!  If you haven’t signed up for eScrip, please visit TODAY to sign up, so your child’s class can meet the goal. The group number for the Palo Verde is 137331259. Check Friday’s edition of The Voice to see how many families your child’s class needs to beat the challenge!

The 12 best entries will be displayed prominently along the main entrances. Please note that this is a family effort and parents are encouraged to discuss traffic safety with their kids and help with the poster/slogan. The deadline for submission is 2 pm, Friday,January 18.
