Science Fair Judges Needed! 

The annual St. Paul of the Cross Science Focus is coming up on Wednesday, January 24th, 2018. A total of 62 students will be judged on their projects at the school level. Some students will then progress to further competition at the regional level.

We need at least 25 science fair judges so as not to overwhelm any judge with too many projects. Each student will be judged twice in two separate judgings. We are looking for interested people who work in science-related occupations or who enjoy science as a personal interest. If you have judged with us in previous years, we hope you will return again this year.

More great ideas from our Home & School Association!

Box Tops are SNOW wonderful! Box Tops for Education is one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs and is an easy way to raise money for SPC. Many companies participate in the Box Tops program; examples include Ziploc (plastic bags), Progresso (soup), General Mills (Cheerios, Chex, Nature Valley granola bars), Scott (Kleenex facial tissues, paper towels), Annie’s (organic foods), Betty Crocker (baking products), Land O Lakes (butter, margarine), Hefty (garbage bags, disposable cups and plates), and Mott’s (applesauce and apple juice). Attached is a list of product brands that participate in Box Tops for Education.

Since Box Tops are SNOW wonderful, let’s see how many we can collect during this snowy time! Students can turn the Box Tops into their teachers. You can always turn them in at the EGC office or the collection box in the UGC hallway.

TRIP - We will be in the UGC every Friday morning between 8:00 - 9:00 a.m.   We will have cards for purchase (cash or check) that can be taken home with you! Buy cards for your everyday shopping or to give as gifts!
