As many know, at Buchanan we accept donated Birthday Books at our library. Many students would rather have cupcakes to share with their friends in school. Before deciding on how to celebrate at school please contact your child's teacher. Due to time constraints and different dietary/health issues of other students, some teachers prefer parents donate something the students can use in class, such as, pencils, erasers, etc.Budget cuts have been hard on all of our teachers. If you are able, please donate to your child's classroom teacher wishlist.
In addition, Art, Gym, Library, and Music teachers have also created a wishlist if you want to donate to those classrooms as well. See the attachment below (Specials Wish List) for the items on their lists.
Thank you for your help!

SHOPPING AND SAVING FOR OUR SCHOOL
Giant A+ - Thanks for your support and remember you need to designate your card again this year in order to help our school again. You can designate at the customer service desk of your local Giant grocery store, or by going to the website http://www.giantaplus.com/ . Use school ID#01456. You can also keep track at the website of how much money our school is earning!
Target RED Card - We've discovered a terrific way to raise funds for our school. It's super-easy, and all you have to do is use your Target ® Visa ® or Target ® Card. We will receive a percentage of the amount of each purchase in the form of a cash donation from Target through the Take Charge of Education ® program.
It's easy. Just visit www.target.com/tcoe or call 1-800-316-6142 to designate our school. Use school ID#89184. So if you're going to Target anyway, please consider using your Target ® Visa ® or Target ® Card. Big thanks to those who are already doing their part to make a great school even better.
Capri Sun Pouches - There is a container in the cafeteria designated for collecting Capri Sun drink pouches. Since many children bring them in their lunches, it is a great way to raise a little money and help the environment.
Remind your kids to drop them in the collection can in the cafeteria! If you are sending them from home and you need to cut them to rinse them out, please cut them ABOVE the straw insert location. PLEASE MAKE SURE STRAWS ARE REMOVED! THANKS!
Box Tops - The school will be collecting Box Tops for Education again this year. If you are not familiar with Box Tops, they are located on General Mills cereal products, as well as many other products. It is a small rectangle located on the packaging which you must cut out. Save them up and send them in to school with your child. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents, and with so many families, they add up quickly.
For a complete list of products that contain Box Tops, please click HERE .
A listing of all Box Tops collection sheets can be found at: http://www.boxtops4education.com/earn/clip/Projects.aspx .
Can Tabs - Continue to send in any soda can tabs you are saving. The soda can tabs are collected to benefit the Ronald McDonald House charities. For more information, please go to www.rmhc.com . The tab container is located in the school's main office.
Crossing guards are needed for the 2015 -2016 School Year.
