Box Tops
Chair:   April Sears
Description:  

Let’s  clip some BoxTops! With your help, the money Center Hale PTO raises from your clipping and sending in "BoxTops" can fund an entire all-school arts & culture program! By turning trash into cash you will help Center Hale PTO and Center School.

If you have BoxTops please send them in with your child. A collection container is located in the lobby of the school. Come into the school and drop them off for yourself or put them in an envelope and give your child an assignment to drop them in the box when they walk in from the bus. It's fun and easy!

Twice a year, we submit BoxTops to General Mills. Our goal this year is to earn $1,000. That works out to 10,000 individual BoxTops.  Wow, that’s a lot of BoxTops! 

 
Center School Picnic

The Center School Picnic is a tradition going back at least 40 years.  The Picnic is a celebration of the schools, the children, and their families.  It is a community event with participation from all ages and is entirely staffed by SPTO volunteers. Parents enjoy meeting up with the other parents and working at the many volunteer positions at the picnic; the kids revel in the great party atmosphere.  The picnic features food, games, music, and fun.  At the games there are physical challenges for every age from toddler to teen.  Each class contributes donations for Raffle Baskets which are usually chock full with the things kids love.  We have a dunk tank to soak your teachers! Every year we tweak the event.
