Volunteers Needed 
We are looking forward to an evening of crafts, fun, and most importantly community. We have dedicated group planning the event, but we need volunteers at the event. Sign up using the link below. Invite others to sign up, as well. Many hands make light work.

Box Tops for Education 
Jie Ming collects Box Tops for Education from products that families buy at stores. The school earns 10 cents for every Box Top collected! 
Our next Box Tops submittal to General Mills is due in mid-October. Please send your Box Tops to school in a zipped baggie and have your child give them to his/her teacher.
Submission deadline: 10/13/17

Note: the Box Tops container by the front office for Hamline Elementary, is NOT Jie Ming.

Thank you for your time and help with this program. Any questions, please contact Tricia Lawrence.
