Director of Finance and Operations, Robyn Vosberg-Torgerson, had her last two Superswitch visits of the year to Isanti Primary/Cambridge Middle Schools on April 23 & 24.

Adapted Bowling State Sendoff

2014-05-16.jpg
The crowd roared and the pep band played the school song as the athletes entered the crowded gymnasium at Cambridge-Isanti High School on Thursday morning. Classes had been put on hold so students and staff could honor their Bluejackets the day before they competed at state.

Principal Mitchell Clausen and athletic director Mark Solberg spoke to the crowd. So did the coach, the team managers and the team captains. It was a joy to behold.

Solberg said to the athletes, “You’re representing us with an awful lot of class, an awful lot of dignity. And you’re going to make us proud.” continue reading


Congratulations and thank you to our Adapted Bowling Team, coached by Steve Tischer, April Dahlquist, Mary Eklund, and Deb Feero for an outstanding season. At the state meet on Friday; Kaitlyn Pankan, grade 9, placed 5th, and Cory Hoover, grade 11, placed 6th.

Alexander has been offered the National Merit North Dakota State University Scholarship award.

Fundraising: It all adds up!
Clip and save your BoxTops or Labels for Education, keep your General Mills Box Tops, and Swipe your Target RedCard. Although these three things seem simple and easy, they also can raise funds for our school. We can use the money for things like field trips, special classroom supplies, and other "extras" that school budgets can't fund.
In fact, together, these programs bring the school hundreds -- sometimes thousands --  of dollars each year. Remember to ask your friends, relatives and neighbors to save things too. It's a simple way to help that goes a long way.


2142012_124530_223.png
BoxTops for Education
What to Do: Clip Box Tops coupons from hundreds of products found at your local grocery store. Each coupon is worth 10 cents when we redeem them from General Mills.

Where to Find: Pop Secret popcorn, Bugels, Chex Mix, Gardettos snacks, Cheerios, Wheaties, Chex, Total, Kix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Trix, Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms, Yoplait Go-Gurt, Pillsbury Rolls, Betty Crocker cake mixes and frosting, Bisquick, Progresso Soup, Old El Paso products, Gold Medal flour and many more! Go to www.boxtops4education.com to see a complete list of participating products.

Campbell's Labels for Education
The Labels for Education program is a great way to get FREE merchandise for our school, and Campbell's makes it so easy to redeem labels. Participating in the program is easy - simply save the UPC labels from Campbell's and other participating products and send them to school!


logo-tools0.pngEARN MONEY FOR YOUR SCHOOL!

SAVE THE UPC'S FROM COUNTRY HEARTH AND VILLAGE HEARTH PRODUCTS.  

They are worth 5 cents each.  The money can be used for books, computers, music, etc.  

Send saved UPC with your child to school!

Other Items that can be Donated for Fundraising
Your school also participates in fundraising through a recycling program.  Please send empty inkjet and laser printer cartridges and used cell phones with your student or drop them off the next time you are in the building in the designated area in the main office.
Target Take Charge of Education
Here's a terrific way to raise funds for your School! All you have to do is use your Target Visa or Target Card. Target generously donates 1 percent of your Target Visa or Target Card purchases to the school of your choice in the form of a cash donation through the Take Charge of Education program. Target tracks purchases charged to participating accounts and sends each school in the district a check in March and September.

Sign me up!
Signing up is easy.  Just visit target.com/tcoe, or call 1-800-316-6142 to designate the school of your choice as the school to receive a percentage of your purchases.

If you ever shop at Target, please consider using your Target Visa or Target Card. A big thanks to those who are already doing their part to make our great school even better.
