WEEKEND CHALLENGES

The weekend challenges are your student's opportunity to win prizes. No purchase is required to participate, but only 5th graders are eligible for prizes.

Each time students complete a challenge, his/her name is entered into the prize database. Winning names will be plucked from the list, at random, by a computer program. Students, the more times your name appears, the better chance you have of winning! You have 2 weekends to complete challenges.

Prize winners will be picked
Tues., May 18th & Tues., May 25th
