Box Tops are due Monday, February 26th!

Blog Image BoxTopsClipping Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our PTA. Each one is worth 10¢! Just look for the pink Box Tops on hundreds of products. All you have to do is clip them and send them to school in a bag or envelope.  Make sure to write your grade and teacher on the envelope.

It’s contest time!  The top 3 classes will earn a popcorn party and the teacher will receive a reimbursement up to $15 for media, supplies or recess equipment for their classroom!  Last spring, Ms. Boyee used her reimbursement to buy duck eggs for her students to hatch!  Turn in your Box Tops by October 20 to be counted in the Fall contest.

For more information on Box Tops, including a list of participating products, go to BTFE.com. Be sure to sign up as a member (it’s free!) so you can check out our school’s earnings details and get access to coupons and bonus offers.
