Our second collection for Box Tops is Wed. Dec. 9th. This time we are having a drawing with great prizes. The grand prize is tickets to see the JAZZ play the Minnesota Timberwolves on Dec. 14th. Two scholars will win the grand prize and each will receive 4 JAZZ tickets. Submitting box tops is easy, each teacher has a folder in his/her classroom. For every 10 box tops you hand in you will get 1 entry. The more entries you submit the higher your chances are of winning! Be sure to include the scholars name and teachers name on every entry. We would like to thank everyone for taking the time to enter box tops. Your submissions do make a difference! For any questions regarding box tops e-mail Susan

Volunteer Opportunity's

We are in need of volunteer's on a regular basis in the lunch room. If you are willing to help please contact Liz Wayman at Thank You!

We need volunteers that would be willing to come and pick up the bags of empty Capri Sun pouches, flaten them, cut off the tops and box them up to be mailed. If we can get four volnteers the need would be for one Friday a month and would take approximately 30 minutes. If you are interested please contact the Recycling committe under contact us. Thank You!

Books, Books, Books!

We are thrilled and AMAZED to see the final numbers from the book drive! We now have over 3,300 additional books! So…we are rather desperate for some volunteer help to get these wonderful books onto our shelves. We could use 4-8 people (am and pm) per day until the job is done. Whatever help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! Please contact Sherry or Peggy in the library!


The administration is in need of a little help from a few parent volunteers. This work can be done from home if parents are willing to sign a confidentiality agreement and SIS use form. We need to have the attendance records for 650 students re-entered for Term 1. PLEASE CONTACT JON HAGEN AT for any questions or to volunteer! We appreciate your willingness to help!


*PARENTS* Our next Friday Breakfast Mingle will be held Friday, December 5th from 8:15am-9:00am. You can drop off your kids and stop in for a light continental breakfast and some mingling with other parents. It will be held in the Excelsior Academy Cafeteria!
