Box Tops News Flash…..  

For October, FBA is going to do something a little bit differently.  During the month of October, the Box Tops competition is going to highlight those non-homeroom teachers that are such an integral part of FBA:  Teachers who teach Specials (Electives and Support classes).  

Specials include such classes as Art, Band, Choir/Music, Computer, Library, P.E./Health, Spanish, Tech Crew, Theatre, Yearbook, etc.….just to name a few😊

SOOOO ….October 2nd through October 27th, please turn in your baggie of Box Tops with your SPECIALS TEACHER’S NAME on it.  

The winning Specials will get a dress down day (teacher and all the students in that Special!) on Nov 15th!!!

Will elementary Music or P.E. win out over Upper School’s diverse array of electives???  Enquiring minds want to know….Stay Tuned….

Friendly Reminder, September Box Tops monthly competition ends on 

Sep 29th.  The winning Homeroom classroom will be announced in the newsletter during the 1st week of October.
