HUNGRY HOWIES pizza night to benefit CHS

Smart is partnering with Hungry Howies this year.  Every other Thursday, if enough pizzas are sold,  Smart will receive 10% of the proceeds from all sales (the entire day) at the store on Union Lake near Commerce Road.  Please make Thursday your pizza night!  Flyers will be coming home with students or can be printed from our web site - just hand them the flyer at the pizza counter.  This is an easy way to make money for our school projects.

Box Tops for Education 

The PTSA Box Tops program is still going strong.  This year the proceeds will go to the encore department.  Smart raised over $1500.00 in our two box tops drives last school year.  Let's keep cutting them.  There are two turn in months each year - OCtober and February.  The last day to turn these in for the October drive is Oct. 26th. 

Campbells Soup Labels for Education

These are needed to help our school earn rewards.  Please cut the rewards portion of the label and send to school.  The student council will be coordinating the collection this year. 

Hiller's Cards are available through CHS.  CHS receives proceeds from your purchases if you are registered! The re-loadable Hiller's card returns money directly to the CHS PTSA which supports school-wide initiatives.  Please be sure to get your card today if you have not already done so.  These are available in the school office.
