Dining for Dollars - Wednesday, September 19, 2018: 4pm to 10pm

The Habit, 4175 Genesee Avenue (Vons/Kohl's shopping plaza)

Why cook when you can enjoy a delicious cheeseburger, sandwich, salad, or shake at The Habit? 20% of your order total will go back to Holmes Elementary when you present the attached flyer.  A hard copy of the flyer is needed in order for us to receive credit.  Please make sure to print it out and bring it with you!

Every month, on the last Friday, we will be collecting Box Tops. Please make sure you turn in your Box Tops in a Ziploc bag or envelope with your student’s name on it. 
Each month, one classroom will win bragging rights for collecting the most Box Tops and keep the Box Top Trophy for the month.  At the end of the school year, the top 3 classrooms will be recognized for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
For more information about Box Tops and a list of products, please visit www.boxtops4education.com.
