Lake Elkhorn Middle School is looking for donations for our school store.  Students earn eagle bucks for exhibiting the characteristics of P.R.I.D.E. (Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Dependability, and Excellence) and one of the ways they can spend their eagle bucks is at our monthly school store.  We are asking for any donations you are able to contribute such as school supplies, beauty items, books, head phones, earbuds, phone cases, phone accessories, sports equipment and locker accessories are some ideas that sell well at the school store.  We will have a box on the stage at back to school night labeled “School Store Donations” where you can place any of these items. 

Please note scheduled School Store Dates for 2016-17: 

10/26, 11/16, 12/14, 1/11, 2/1, 2/22, 3/15, 4/5, 5/3, 5/24, 6/14
