*If for some reason you need additional time for your project please let Ms. Morrison know and we can coordinate arrangements for getting the project to the Crown Plaza by noon on Monday.

LMS PTO is collecting Box Tops 4 Education!! LMS PTO is asking for the support of families and community members. Our school earns 10 cents for each box top it collects.
All you have to do is clip the box top label from all participating products and send them to our school.

We will collect them in the students first core classroom and will have a competition to see who can collect the most. You can also drop them off in the main office and we will get them to the correct classroom.
