Guess what!? We already have 46 students that have registered online at home for the Heart Challenge!! And numerous others that have brought in their vouchers having raised $5.00!! We have already raised over $2,500!!!
We are now working to get AT LEAST 50% OF ALL STUDENTS registered online. If we can do this our school gets FREE PE EQUIPMENT from the Hillsborough School District. You do not have to raise money to be registered online. You just log on using the instructions in your packet and thru this site can learn tips and tricks to stay healthy. And you can send out links/emails to family and friends to ask them for their help in completing our goal!
We have a goal to raise $5,000 and we believe we can meet and exceed this seeing how amazing our team is doing so far. Keep up the good work guys!!

Hi everyone, thanks to Megan Moses we have a new marker recycling program at school in conjunction with Crayola. It’s called Crayola ColorCycle – an amazing new program devised to turn used markers into energy!
If you would like to help, please collect any used markers that are ready to be discarded, and drop them in the box outside of Miss Florio's second grade classroom. The markers will be sent to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel. This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!
Thank you in advance for participating and helping to keep tons of plastic out of landfills each year!
The Hillsborough Library is promoting a Hispanic Heritage Bookmark Contest. This is a great opportunity for our K-5 students. You can download a copy of the entry form or Ms. Sherrill has copies outside of the art room.
