PTO Collections:

The 2017-18 HyVee School Bucks program will be ending soon.  Please return all receipts that you may have saved by May 3rd.  The receipts must be dated August 1, 2017 through April 29, 2018.  They will EXPIRE and cannot be used for next year.  We have earned $2,600 from the School Bucks program so far this year, and with a strong turn in, we can surpass $3,000 as in years past.  Also continue to send in Box Tops, Coke Codes, and Tyson Labels.  Our school has 21 supporters in the Shoparoo app and has accumulated over 8,300 points so far.  These points will turn into a cash payout in September.  Holy Cross PTO uses all of the funds generated to give back to the school through special purchases, planning family events, and showing appreciation for teachers and staff.  Thank you for your continued support!
