Box Tops & Dimes

CONGRATULATIONS to Mrs. Corrigan’s 5th grade class…they submitted the most Box Tops & Dimes for the Spring! They will receive a special class snack to thank them for all of their efforts!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all of the Arbor View families who participated in the Box Tops & Dimes collections this past year. Because of our efforts, we collected over $1450! Arbor View PTC funds many of the school assemblies, Back to School Bash, Art Smart, Dr. Bruno’s Birthday Books, the Variety Show and so much more! The money raised from Box Tops & Dimes goes to fund these important activities.

Please continue to collect Box Tops & save those dimes…we will need them next fall! Thank you again!
