Thank you Whittier families for your support of the Student Council’s collection for PADS and our holiday candy cane fundraiser. You’re the best!
Just a reminder that the Student Council collects General Mills box tops that are found on many different products. We will be turning our collection in mid-February. Last year’s box top money helped fund an all-school assembly and many of our charities.
Please send cut-out box tops with expiration dates AFTER March 1, 2016, with your child to school ASAP. General Mills does not accept expired box tops. All box tops will be forwarded to Mrs. Krygeris for Whittier’s Student Council.
Thank you and Happy New Year from Whittier Student Council!
