PE & My Coke Rewards Program

Ellison is registered in the My Coke Rewards Program again this year...yeah!  This program allows us to gain points by entering the codes found on any product bottled by the coca-cola company (coke, sprite, powerade, dasani, etc.).  Codes are found under bottle caps, inside the opening flap of 12/24 fridge packs, or on the back of a black plastic square when purchasing bottled products.  The codes vary in point values but any code will be welcomed as it adds points to Ellison's overall total.  Thus far, this program has allowed me to get some great new PE Equipment (basketballs, jerseys, nutrition game, hockey goals, hockey sticks) for our students and I'm hoping we can once again get some great new things this school year.

If you would like, feel free to browse the site at  You can find Ellison Elementary and take a look at my wish list.  If you register on your own, you can donate points to our school by typing in the codes that you find under bottle caps or on the flap of 12/24 packs.  If you would not like to register but would like to donate your codes, you can send them with your child and I would be glad to type them in for you.  As always, your support is greatly appreciated!  Thanks for all you do!
