HMS is collecting box tops this year. 
It's a cheap and easy way to help
out the school. The PTO will have
a contest among the first period classes
for each grade that collects the most
box tops will win an ice cream party.

Please make sure your box tops for
your first period are in a baggy with
your name in it so we can keep track of
the class. There is a box
in the office that you or students can
put the baggies in.
