Nickajack Box Top for Education Campaign
October 12th - October 26th

We know you've been saving them and now it's time to turn them in!  Our first campaign of the year starts on October 12th and runs through October 26th. 

Each class will have their very own container to fill with clipped box tops.  In order to get credit for your class the box top must be cut and then put in your class container.

We hope everyone will want to participate to earn money for our school.  So ask your neighbors, family and friends to save their box tops so you can win for your class while also winning for Nickajack.

Each winning class in each grade will earn a reward at school. So get your kids cutting and send in those Box Tops!!!

Nickajack has added two 1st grade classes to our Dual Language English/Spanish Immersion program!  Last year's Kindergartners will move up to 1st grade and we will welcome our second group of Kindergarten students to the program.  This unique model provides instruction and support for students in learning both languages.  Students will split their day between instruction in Spanish and English. 

  • We will continue to grow this program each year through Grade 5.

  • We will instill cultural competence and enhance communication among our students and community. 

  • Our vision and mission is to develop and honor the greatness in everyone and help every child to become a leader. 

  • Our Dual Language English/Spanish Immersion program will help students to become bi-lingual and bi-literate in an ever changing world.
