Annual 4th Period Paper Wars!
Our annual paper drive, 4th Period Paper Wars, opens on Monday, April 20 and closes at 3pm on Friday, May 1. Donations from this drive make it possible to use limited funding for other needs such as classroom LCD projectors and document cameras.
Paper will be on sale at Staples on Hawthorne/Sepulveda Boulevards in Torrance. When you purchase paper at this Staples location (visit the Copy and Print Center), let them know it’s for the West High Paper Wars and you will receive tickets to give to your 4th period teacher.
All students who purchase at least one ream of paper at Staples will be entered into a drawing to win a laptop computer, courtesy of Staples. The more paper you donate, the greater your chance of winning. Staples will keep your drawing tickets for the laptop computer and will conduct the drawing at the end of the Paper Wars.
Reams of paper purchased at other locations should be brought to your 4th period teacher. Cases of paper purchased at other locations should be brought to the Principal’s office with the student’s name and 4th period teacher’s name written on the case. We will notify the teacher of your donation.
Additional Student Incentives
4th period classes that collect the equivalent of one ream of paper per student by 3pm Wednesday, April 22 will be entered into an Early Bird drawing to win a class pizza party. Teachers, please email Linda if your 4th period class qualifies.
Paper Wars Winner
The 4th period class that collects the most tickets/reams of paper will receive a class lunch. Step up to the challenge and win for your class. Donations will be totaled after May 1. I will put an envelope with your name on it in your mailbox at the end of the week to keep your tickets in.
