Our annual Adidas sale is scheduled for tomorrow, Friday, December 4 from 7 a.m. – 12 p.m. in the Tibbetts Building. A variety of new Adidas merchandise will be available: hoodies, jackets, pants, t-shirts, shorts, compression garments, shoes, bags, backpacks, socks, etc. All items are priced between $5 and $20, and only cash is accepted. This sale provides a great opportunity to purchase some Christmas gifts. Also, a portion of sales will directly benefit TKA’s Athletic Department.
CANDY CANE FUNDRAISER
The music department is selling Candy Cane Greetings for $1 to raise funds to purchase instruments. There are two choices for the greetings: “Merry Christmas” on green paper and “Merry Christmas to Someone Sweet” on red paper attached to a 6 inch candy cane. These greetings can be purchased from the elementary office, the high school office, or Mrs. Benson. Or, you can send a list with your money to your child’s classroom teacher with the following information:
To: Student’s first and last name
Where: Classroom teacher (Grade for MS & HS Students)
From: Name of who is sending the greeting
All Candy Cane Greeting orders must be submitted by December 11. The greetings will delivered the week of December 14-18.
Your support is greatly appreciated!
DEADLINE FOR CHRISTMAS SCRIP ORDERS
December 10 at 8:00 a.m. is the last day to order cards that we do not normally keep in stock. The December 10 deadline is also good for “pre-ordering” to make sure you get the cards you need. These “pre-orders” will be placed in a bag just for you….no worrying about us running out of what you need. Orders placed by the 10th will be ready to pick up on the 18th. Orders placed by December 3 at 8:00 a.m. will be available December 11.
Don’t forget about our TKA Staff Gift Registry that is available in the School Store. Also, SCRIP has gift boxes available for your convenience for $2 each.
A BENCH FOR CAPS UPDATE
Mrs. Pitney is loading up plastic lids to take to Indiana over Christmas break. Please bring in all the lids you’ve saved up by December 11 in order to give her plenty of time to weigh them. Also, please remember that the lids must be COMPLETELY PLASTIC. The lids cannot contain any metal because it will destroy the company’s equipment. Ensure lids contain metal, so please do not send these lids. Thank you!
