Carriel

Help Carriel’s Parent Teachers Organization by collecting and turning in Box Tops for Education.

Each Box Top that that we collect is worth 10 cents and Carriel students usually bring in about 10,000 box tops per year – that is $1000 to spend on great things like the Cougar Carnival.

The first deadline is Thursday, Sept. 1. The next deadline is Sept. 8.

With recent flooding in the Baton Rouge area,thousands of young people have lost everything, both at home and at school.

Carriel is now looking to be part of bringing some sense of normalcy to affected fellow students by sending donations of new or gently used school supplies.

If you would like to be involved without donating supplies, feel free to make a card or write a letter or support. Those make a huge difference as well! Collections will continue until Thursday, Sept. 1.

Parents who have a Carriel child who is interested in attending the Washington D.C. trip, are encouraged to attend a Sept. 21 informational meeting.

During the meeting, the trip features, cost, fundraising, and expectations will be discussed. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.

Fulton

A Comic Book Club will begin meeting soon at Fulton Junior High School.

A Comic Book Club is a group that will meet once a week during lunch hour. It will be a great place to meet other students that like the same things you do.

New parents interested in volunteering need to pick up a volunteer application in their student’s respective office. Volunteer trainings will be at Marie Schaefer School in the computer lab.
