      Help us earn much needed funds.  For every Box top we turn in Montpelier earns 10¢.  Yes, just for collecting and turning in those tiny pieces of paper/cardboard we get PAID! 
   
If you use these collection sheets, for each sheet you turn in we earn $2.50, or you can send them in in a bag.  Box tops are on many things you already purchase including THESE PARTICIPATING PRODUCTS!

    Next week, September 17 - 21, is National Box Top$ for Education Week.  During this week and until Sept. 28 we will be rewarding the class in each wing that brings in the most Box Top$ with a DRESS DOWN DAY!

 

 Our Goal for the week is $500.  If each student brings in just one full collection sheet we will nearly triple our goal!  That would be amazing! 

Thank you in advance for your participation and help!

HERE COMES THE BUS: PGCPS INTRODUCES NEW TRACKING APP

Follow the instructions to download the app HERE
PGCPS County Code:  87674

Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) is encouraging parents to download the new Here Comes the Bus mobile app for bus locations and transportation updates.

“In today’s technology-driven world, we want to provide parents with more information at their fingertips,” said Dr. Monica Goldson, Interim CEO. “When you’re wondering if your child’s bus made it to school or when the bus will arrive, there’s an app for that.”

Here Comes the Bus uses global positioning system (GPS) technology to locate and track buses and offers real-time information on the exact location. Parents can track multiple buses and find out exactly when children arrive at school or home.

Parents can customize settings in the app to receive push notifications alerting them when the bus is near or advising of a delay or schedule change.
