New!!  Help Support SES Through the City Market Community Rewards Program!

City Market offers Community Rewards.  Please take a moment to link to the City Market rewards website: and register your City Market card number to donate rewards to Sopris Elementary School. If you have done so in the past, you will still need to 're-up' to continue to donate to SES. You will not have to re-enroll every year. This is a one-time opportunity so City Market can update their files. You will need your City Market Rewards Card in order to enroll.  Thank you for your support!
