Got scissors? If you've been clipping Box Tops all summer, you can bring them in and put them into the Box Tops box--in the main doorway (or send them to school in your kid's folder). What are Box Tops, you say?
Box Tops can really help our school
They are a small but useful tool
They can be found here and there
In Glenmont and most anywhere
From soup cans to cereal boxes
But probably not on bagels and loxes
So please cut them out and send them in
For each 'Top sent, a dime we win!
See the Box Tops sheet in here. If you fill the sheet with Box Tops, send it to school (put in an envelope marked "Box Tops"). A filled sheet = $5.00 for the PTA!
Next PTA Meeting: Tuesday, October 9th @ 7 p.m.

The Office of the New York State Comptroller has an "Unclaimed Funds" website. Banks, insurance companies, corporations and the courts are among the many organizations required by law to report dormant accounts to the New York State Comptroller. These organizations must attempt to notify you by mail and publish the information in newspapers. Despite these efforts, many funds remain unclaimed and are turned over to the Office of the State Comptroller. Do you have money that is owed to you by one of these entities? Find out...you can access the database on the NYS Comptroller's website by clicking here. Who knows--maybe you're a millionaire?!
