Greetings Tobias Families!
Moby Max school wide contest
We are starting a new incentive program for mobymax.com math. The top 3 students in each class (for moby max math minutes that month) will be entered into a school wide drawing. Three winners will be drawn at each Spirit Assembly. The winners get to bring a friend to pizza lunch with Mr.Callaway.
Canned food drive
Tobias is having our annual Elk’s canned food drive from now until mid-December. Be sure to bring in canned items/nonperishable food for your classroom contest!

Want to ensure that your child makes it in the yearbook? The best way is to submit photos that you have taken yourselves. We are accepting pictures for the yearbook now and through the rest of the year. If you happen to take pictures of your child’s class or other school events and are willing to share, please email the photos to Ciara Williams at the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include a small description of what the picture is. For example, if you go on a field trip with a certain class please state that in the email or if you take pictures at the Harvest Carnival please let me know what it is for.
Thanks, Ciara William
