The Wyoming Coaches Association is fortunate to again be able to host the World Record Track Camp.  The camp is Wednesday, July 17th and Thursday, July 18th in conjunction with the WCA summer clinic.  This is a great opportunity for you to get some new training ideas and for kids to learn from some of the best athletes in their event, as well as the current long jump World Record Holder, Mike Powell.  The 2018 camp had nearly 160 athletes from 10 states!  The price is $225, however we hope you will take advantage of the early bird prices: Jan 30 - March 25 ($175), March 26-May 31 ($185), and June 1-July 2 ($195).   If interested and you want more info: see Mr. Parquet

Students:  Please submit school what's happening articles for the school website - prize for the articles that are picked to go on the website - turn in to Mrs. Menzel

FOR SALE:  Philip Scotties Stadium Soft Seats - $10.00 – please bring cash to the HS office if you are interested in purchasing one.  These seats were donated to PHS. Proceeds will go into the athletic fund which is used for needs of the Scottie students.

Philip Elementary Notes

Reminder:  Log into the parent portal to update your information so we have it the most current and correct info.  Please see notes above for new URL information.

Ask your student about the summer school forms and if you want to sign them up, make sure you get the form back to the elementary office.
Changes coming to Box Tops for Education:  Over the summer, you'll begin to see some participating brands change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops label. Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. There will be a new app available this summer. The new app will feature state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school's earnings online. As we mentioned above, some brands have already started to update their packaging in advance. Until the new app launches, if you see the new Box Tops label on packages, you can use the current Box Tops Bonus App to earn Box Tops for that product. Simply download the app, select the bonus app for the product you've purchased and scan your receipt to earn. If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, be sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, once the new app launches, you can “double dip” during the packaging transition by clipping the traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt containing participating products. Thanks for helping our school get what it needs!
