Week of 3/6/17 - 3/10/17

Dear Kepler Parents, Guardians, and Students,

The Pennies for Patients fundraiser kicked off last week, so keep bringing those pennies in!

There is still time to help support our 6th graders in getting to camp! Tie-dye t-shirts are available once again for only $20. You can also support our 6th graders through our Red Carpet Carwash Fundraiser; $15 for 2 carwash tickets, a $32 value. Stop by the Front Desk to purchase tie-dye t-shirts or carwash tickets today!
Also, check out this link to learn about how to help our new school library win $10,000.
