Love and Logic offers a practical, positive and fun approach to maintain and grow happy
families. There is no more difficult, detailed and time consuming job than raising children.
This class can be the manual you may need to learn how to: avoid power struggles, guide
your children to solve their own problems, model and teach responsibility and respectful
communication and raise your children without raising the roof. In this particular seminar
we will be focusing specifically on the early childhood years of toddler and preschool age
children. A future seminar will be held focusing on older children.

Don't forget to save Boxtops for TVA!

TVA collects pink boxtops! Boxtops are found on General Mills, Natures, Valleys, Yoplait, and Neslte products to name a few. TVA runs a contest in the Spring for each grade, so start working on your collections now. Ask friends and family to collect as well.

You can also earn e-boxtops by doing your online shopping through the BTFE website: http://www.boxtops4education.com. All you have to do is go through the BTFE marketplace to access many difference sites such as Gap, BabiesRus, BestBuy, Groupon, Expedia, Travelocity, Petco and many more. Please check out the store!

We will continue our teacher incentive. Any teacher who collects over 1,000 boxtops will get 20% of the money they bring in back for their classroom. If you are looking for ways to help out teachers in the classroom, but don't have a lot of time, this is one way to help! Grades 7 through 10 will get half of what they bring in for their class accounts.

Unfortunately the Labels for Education program through Campbells has ended, so we are no longer collecting those.

If you have any questions about either feel free to contact me at bethrjames@comcast.net
