A Message from outgoing student Class President 2013 - 2014

Hey PS11,

For all of you who may not know who I am, my name is Imani D. , your 2013 - 2014 student body president.

PS11 is a very great learning environment.

The teachers are very nice and will push you to do your best.

Your experience here at PS11 will be AWESOME!

PS11 will be like your second home!

I enjoyed my time here at this school and will be sure to pop up at major school events to show my support .

I loved this school so much. I even recorded my first music video right here!!!

If you want to check it out, look up "Mani and Maiya Look at my Socks" on YouTube.

I want you to know that I am wishing you all the best this year .
Try your best!

Remember to respect yourself and others!

Always believe that you are awesome because you are!


Imani D.


Are you collecting Box Tops for school? Don't let clipping get you down! Ragged or trimmed (or really, really trimmed), they're all worth a dime.

Don't forget (while you're enjoying your week off) our school will be sending in the Box Tops that we have collected on Monday, March 2 for our Spring submission. Help us reach that goal and make our earnings check big by sending in your Box Tops.  It doesn't cost a thing.  Use the product list below to see what you may already have at home!

I’ll be COLLECTING Box Tops from the collection box outside the main office until Friday, February 27 so there is plenty of time to get me those Box Tops! If you have Box Tops you need to get to me, here are some optional tips that’ll make the submissionprocess easier:

• Bundle your Box Tops in groups of 10 or 50 using a sealable bag (ziploc) or envelope
• Tape or glue Box Tops on a collection sheet (see attached) (NO staples please)

For those who simply tear them off the package, be sure not to tear the Box Tops otherwise they won't be accepted when we submit them.  But no matter how you collect Box Tops, the most important part is to remember to bring them to school!  Once we send in all our Box Tops, our school will receive a check from Box Tops for Education™ and can use this cash to buy the things we need. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at
