 boxtop student winner
Congratulations  to Owen Wiley for winning a weekly OPLC Box Tops for Education STAR.
Moo Money, Box Top Education, Campbell's Labels for Education

Boxtops for Education are an excellent way to gain "free" cash.  With every Boxtop collected, General Mills gives us .10 cents.  To date we have earned over $1000 to which we use to fund the schoolwide reading incentive and the "Braves" cart.  It's easy to help.  Just clip all the boxtops you find on household items and send them in to school (with your child's name on each).  We will collect the Boxtops weekly and if your child's name is drawn, they will receive a small prize.  Also, save Boxtops over the summer and send along when school resumes in the fall.
Campbells has changed their requirements for labels.  In order for us to get credit for labels, the BARCODE must be included.  Just the front picture will no longer count.  Collection of these gains us points to be used to purchase classroom items.
Moo Money is another way to earn money.  These are to caps from Turkey Hill Milk products.  Please note:  we need the entire cap and the sticker.  In order for a cap to count it must have the sticker attached.  For every 500 caps, Turkey Hill will send us $50.  Also, please don't include any other products caps.  No other company runs this program

Ashlyn F. (Young Authors Club)  Young Authors Club
Young Authors Club

Twenty five young authors spent every Tuesday afternoon for the past seven weeks, writing a biography.  The authors were second grade students at the OPLC.  Each student chose a person who was eighteen years old, or older and interviewed them for their biography.  The authors broke the biography down into three stages.  Younger years, high school/college and present day.  They came up with interesting questions to ask.  The authors took notes and recorded the responses.  The last paragraph was a surprise and the young authors wrote why that person is so special.  After much hard work, the authors typed up their biographies and shared them in front of an audience of about 100 people.   Shown in the pictures are Ashlyn Foster  who chose to write about her mom Jenn Foster.  Also picture is Kaitlyn Salada and her mom, Danielle Salada.
