Box Tops for Education

Clipping Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our school. 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.

We are collecting Box Tops in the designated bag in your child’s first core classroom. All Box Tops need to be turned in by Friday, Oct. 28th.

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.

If you have any questions, please contact Tom Newport at thomasnewport@att.net.
