You will have received the order form and catalog for our fall Yankee Candle Fundraiser earlier this week.
Remember, in addition to sharing your catalog with friends and family (for ordering and pick up through the school), you can encourage them to place orders online for home delivery – a great option for those that live far away but want to support your efforts. The orders submitted via Bucher PTO will be available for pick up on December 3, but you are welcome to order online and ship to your home for the best selection and faster arrival.
You can email the candle fundraiser information with a letter like this one:

*** In order to help during the school day, you do need CLEARANCES through the District Office. *** Click here for more information about clearances. It usually takes a few weeks for clearances to be processed and received, so your clearances will likely be valid for the next PTO event, not the Fall Book Fair.
If you do not have CLEARANCES, you can help at our Family Night on Monday October 5th 5:30 – 7:00pm!!
Thanks again and see you at the Fair!

Box Tops Due Feb 23rd

We are excited to announce that there is a New Box Top Collection Bin for the students in the hallway next to the Nurses office!
Thank you to all of the families that sent in your Box Tops! We have received almost $100 in box tops since the students came back from break! Our goal for the school year is $1000.00. We know that our school can reach our goal! A new collection form will be sent home in soon, so please send in your box tops either on the next form or in a baggie. For those wondering, there will be no contests run for the classes so please send your box tops in before the next submission in March.
Your child will be able to start depositing them into the collection bin starting on Monday!
Target Education Rewards
Do you have a Target debit or credit card? Did you know you can designate Bucher to receive up to 1% of your purchases through Target’s Take Charge of Education program? You can learn more at www.Target.com/tcoe. Only 14 Target cards currently designate Bucher as the school to receive Target’s Take Charge of Education money, and this September Bucher received about $400 from Target. Thank you Target shoppers!
This does not impact your reward points, but sends additional money to Bucher! Here’s where you sign up.
FAMILY NIGHT AT THE FALL BOOK FAIR is tonight in the school library from 5:30 – 7:30pm and will feature fun activities, special guest readers, and of course a great selection of books to buy for our young readers.
GIANT A+ SCHOOL REWARDS: Congratulations to the Suliveras Family who won the Bucher $25 Giant Gift Card Raffle. Remember, designating Bucher as your school for Giant A+ School Rewards does not affect the Giant Bonus Points you receive and use for gas discounts and free turkeys! It’s completely separate. Giant Food Stores has set aside $3,000,000 to award to participating schools – the more Giant Bonus Cards that designate Bucher as their school, the bigger percentage of that money Bucher will receive. Giant A+ School Rewards program runs October 5, 2014 – March 21, 2015. Bring your Giant Bonus Card tonight to Family Night at the Book Fair to designate Bucher or go online to: www.giantfoodstores.com/aplus. Our school code is 02042.
