Box Tops Are Changing

Fall 2019

While you can still turn in any Box Tops you have around the house (and please do!), packages will soon have a new label with new redemption instructions.

Instead of clipping the 10c tops off of packages, you’ll use the Box Tops app to scan in your receipt. You can do it as you leave the store and never think about sending in Box Tops again! Now when your kid tosses the box in the recycling bin, you don’t have to dig it out to claim that little rectangle! 

Check out the flyer below for all of the details

Thank you for your support!

 Ice Cream Social


It’s hot, summer is approaching, and we could all use a chance to cool off. Join us for our yearbook signing party and enjoy some cold treats.

Each Neely kid gets one treat free!

Teachers get a free treat, too! Choose from an ice cream sandwich or a fruit popsicle. Additional treats can be purchased for 50c each.  

Bring your yearbook and join us in the cafeteria on May 17th from 5:00-6:30. The whole family is welcome.

We will also be selling gel pens in fun colors for $1 each, if you forget to bring something to sign with.

Yearbooks will be handed out at the end of the school day on Friday, May 17th. A few extra yearbooks were ordered. These will be sold (first come, first served, in person) in the office on Friday for $30 each. If there are any left, we will sell them at the Ice Cream Social.

Event is cash or check only for pens, yearbooks, and additional treats.

 

Box Tops Drive

May 13-17

School is almost out for the summer. It’s time to turn in all of your Box Tops before the year is over and they expire.

Bring your Box Tops in the morning (before school starts) to the table under the East Ramada, from May 13th through May 17th. A prize will be given to each student when they turn in at least 5 Box Tops together. One prize per student, please.

The classroom with the most Box Tops submitted will win a $25 gift card for their teacher.

We are keeping it simple at the end of the year. We know you’re busy! The last check from Box Tops was just over $400. Those little 10c cardboard rectangles add up quickly, so send them in!

Thank you for your support!

Our PRIVATE Neely Skate Party!

Join us right after school ends on the last day of the year at Skateland in Chandler: 12:45-3:45, May 23, 2019. Last year, we had over 100 people skating!

We are holding a Pre-Sale to cut down on your wait time. Entrance, Lunch Deals, and Skate Rental call all be purchased by returning the paper flyer that was sent home today. Can’t find it? You can print one HERE.

Lunch Deals are available during the Pre-Sale only. Admission and Rentals can be purchased during the Pre-Sale or at the door.

Any Neely family is welcome! Children do not have to attend Neely, but they do need to be accompanied by someone who currently has a child at Neely (so you can bring your neighbor kids or cousins that you’re watching that day).

Pre-Sale purchases are due to the Neely Office on May 21. Entrance, Lunch, and Rental tickets will come home in an envelope on May 22nd.

Join us for an Indoor

for the last 30 min!

The DETAILS:

Anyone who wants to skate must pay an admission fee.  The cost is $3 for each child and $2 for each adult. We are offering a price break with a family maximum for SKATERS of $10. Rentals and lunch will be an additional cost. Non-skaters are welcome to come for free. Also, if you have young kids, you CAN bring a stroller and skate them in it around the rink with you for free!  100% of the cost of admission comes back to Neely!

Skateland is offering a Lunch Deal for us. $3 will purchase a slice of pizza and a small drink. There will be a table set out where you can redeem your Pre-Sale ticket for your slice and drink without waiting in the concession line. You may choose any drink, but we will have Sprite and Coke in pre-filled cups.

You can bring and wear your own skates. If you need skates, Skate Rentals can be purchased ahead of time. Old-school skates are $3.50 per pair and RollerBlades are $4.50. Just give your Skate Rental ticket to the attendant at the skate counter.

Skate-Mates (those pvc-pipe supports on wheels) can be rented at the door only. 

The entire Skateland facility is open only to Neely families so you’re sure to find a friend! 

If you still have questions contact us at [email protected] and we will do our best to answer them.

Our pretty flyer, so you know what to look for in the stack of papers in their Friday folders.

Harkins Summer Movie Fun

Print a Paper Form

 

Orders are filled on a first come, first serve basis, so we will be placing orders weekly. Use the button above to print a paper form. Forms were also given to the teachers to send home today. No online orders will be accepted. Make sure you clearly mark your first and second choices for both theater and day of week. Parent and child tickets are the same price. Tickets are $7 per person.

 

If you haven’t attended the Summer Movie Program at Harkins before, here’s a little more about it:

  • All movies start at 9:45am.
  • One movie is shown each week. The movies are shown in the order listed above.
  • Your ticket is valid for guaranteed entry at your theater on your day only. You can attend on a different day if there are spaces available when you show up to the theater (there is usually room).
  • You can give your tickets to someone else if you can’t attend one week.
  • All “rooms” in a theater are showing the same movie, so pick whichever room you like.
  • The showings are very kid friendly, so little kids are ok to bring. 
  • Everyone 3 years and older needs a ticket.  Seats are only guaranteed for ticket holders so children 2 and under may need to sit on a parent’s lap.
  • Parents must stay with kids.
  • No adults without children will be admitted, so Grandma must enter with your family if she wants to come. 
  • You can use your Harkins Loyalty Cups during the Summer Movie.

Box Tops Competition

It’s Box Top Clipping Time!

It’s similar to competitions we’ve done before. Read below for the details and rules.

The competition runs during the week of February 11-15, from 8:15-8:33 each morning. Look for the table with bins under the East Ramada. Make sure your Box Tops are in the bins before the first bell rings at 8:38 if you want them to be counted.

The winning grade will win a Valentine’s Day themed sweet treat. We will announce the results on Monday, after the competition ends.

The Fine Print

  • Each valid Box Top will count as 1 point.
  • Neatly trimmed, valid Box Tops will count as 5 points per Box Top.
    • A valid Box Top is one that has not expired and shows the brand code in the corner. Box Tops that are not valid will not be counted.
    • Neatly trimmed is defined as a Box Top that is cut within a quarter-inch of the dotted line and is not “torn” on more than one edge.
  • To earn points, place your Box Tops in the bin for your grade. That’s it!

Remember, if they are NEATLY TRIMMED,

they are worth 5 points each!

Now, go scour the house for Box Tops to bring in.
