Reach Academy is now participating in Box Tops For Education, a year round, ongoing fundraiser. It's an easy program to participate in and it directly supports our school. All you need to do is to clip the Box Tops For Education square on specially marked boxes of food, paper, and home products.
EACH BOX TOP LABEL IS WORTH 10 CENTS!
The more we collect, the more money we can raise for our school. Box tops in a bag can come in any time. Ask neighbors, aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends to collect for you too. Please trim to the dotted line, keep the date intact and send them in.
We can earn cash for our school online, too! Shop online through the Box Tops website and earn eBoxtops credits on all your purchases. Just click the “earn” section at the top of the BTFE.com homepage and scroll down to “shop marketplace.” Any eBoxTops you earn will be automatically credited to our school.

Today our students, teachers, and chaperones visited the Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary. This is Northeast FL's longest operating sanctuary and home to 26 tigers, 3 lions, 8 cougars, 4 leopards, 2 bobcats, 2 coatimundis, and 1 white arctic fox named Chula.
After watching an introductory video, our group took a walking tour of the sanctuary, viewing the animals while our guide, Ms. Kim, told us about the eating, sleeping and playing habits of these magnificent felines. Some of the animals were playful with each other, some preferred to be in quiet solitude. Nero, a male Siberian tiger even came right up to the fence and posed, showing off his sleek stripes and giant paws.
The experience was informative and fun - our students had a great day.
