Vendor Discount Percentages: Where do I find them? The list of merchants and their discount % amounts can change from time to time. Go to www.mannaexpress.net to see the merchant list. Click on FORMS and then BY PERCENTAGE to see the most current vendor discount percentages. Every little bit earned goes towards your child’s Manna account, and ultimately offsets their 8th grade Washington D.C. trip!
ECO Club Challenges YOU!
The CHMS Eco Club is once again participating in the USAgain America Recycles Challenge! Throughout November, CHMS will compete to collect the most textiles for recycling. The top 5 collecting schools will win cash prizes and all schools will raise funds for every pound collected! The USAgain bin is on the CHMS plaza to collect all kinds of textiles, which are then reused or recycled. The bin provides students, faculty and the local community an eco-friendly and convenient way to recycle clothes and shoes while we earn cash per pound of textiles collected. Start delivering your textiles any time until Sunday, November 30th!
Become a Tech Savvy Parent
Tomorrow, Monday November 3rd at 7:00 pm, CHMS Principal Griffin Sonntag and MRC Directory Sally Duffy will present “Digital Citizenship.” Parents will learn about the latest technology and apps, parenting tips, and reinforcements about helping our children navigate social media and technology while growing up. There will be time for questions and answers at the end. If you don’t know much about the technology your children are using (like Snapchat, Instagram, Whisper, etc.) please come tomorrow night. We hope to see you there!
