We will be collecting BoxTops again so keep saving those!  Same with Spartan Stores/Family Fare receipts, keep sending them in!  Once we have reached $150,000 in receipts, we earn $1,000.

I also posted in our Facebook group that if anyone has any Campbells Labels for Education, please send those in, the program ends 1/2!  So send them in by 12/22 (Last day before Christmas break) and I will get them post marked and sent off!

Planning has started for the school carnival planned for Friday January 26th.  If anyone sees any great after Halloween specials I’m looking for candy and face paint! (Call, text, message Jackie Stone 616-366-1760) Thanks!  Volunteer lists will be available soon!

The PTC is happy to announce that with all the great fundraising we have done this year, we will again be able to provide EVERY SOUTH Student with a free T-Shirt.  We have settled on our design (Shown below).  A Paper form will be sent home this week for you to select your students size.  Please return the paper form by Friday 11/17.  Parents and younger/older siblings will also be able to purchase the same shirt!  You may include your order with your students form or you may order online.  But do NOT order your students free shirt online- everything online will be charged to your credit card.  The free student shirts have to be done by the paper form.  We’ve also added a fitted ladies style.  Samples should be available this week.  Make sure to stay tuned to the Facebook page to find out when!

We have re-opened the website for Grandville apparel!  Click on TEAM SALES and put in the sales code:  GBULLDOGS17
