Lolligrams are Here!!

Kincaid's Relay for Life Team is once again offering Lolligrams.  These treats are a fun way for students to send a valentine to a teacher, a friend or even their entire class! Each message turned in will be attached to a lollipop and delivered to the recipient on February 14th.  The cost is $1.00 for each message sent.  Strips were sent home with each student last week.  The office also has extra copies if you need to purchase more.  You may also download a copy of the strips here:  Lolligram Strips

Please make sure each message is filled out completely and have your student return their orders to the front office with their payment. We will accept cash or checks made out to the American Cancer Society.  The deadline to turn them in is Tuesday, February 12th.
