This Week at Blanche Sims:

Keep Reading During March is Reading Month

Keep reading!  Twenty minutes before bed to get ahead!  Next Friday’s March is Reading Month Spirit Day is Green and White Day.  Donations will also be accepted that will support technology at Blanche Sims. 

Save Your Box Tops

Each Box Top label brings in $.10 for our school.  Combined with the Box Tops that the 490 students bring to school, they can add up to a significant amount of money for our kids.  Please save EVERY Box Top and make sure your children bring them in to their teacher.  Much like not linking your Kroger Rewards card to Blanche Sims, not sending in each and every Box Top is like throwing away free money.  Both of these programs cost you no money and yet can earn our kids thousands of dollars.  Every Box Top counts!

Kids & Kops – Fun for Everyone!

Back by popular demand, the next two Kids & Kops events will take place on March 23 and April 6. Blanche Sims students in grades K-5 will once again have the opportunity to have fun with Lake Orion Village Police Officers playing basketball, hockey, ping-pong, corn hole, board games, and many other activities while enjoying pizza, veggies, and juice.  If you have already turned in a registration form from the first event, you do not need to complete another.  If you still need to register for the program, see registration information attached. Don’t miss this fun event for kids.  Kops & Kids runs from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and takes place right at Sims.

Wear Your Purple Monday, March 26

Purple Day is International Epilepsy Awareness Day.  OnMonday, March 26 annually, people in countries around the world are invited to wear purple and host events in support of epilepsy awareness.  We ask that our students demonstrate their support for the members of our own Dragon family that are afflicted by this disorder by wearing purple on this day.
