Our next Box Tops contest deadline is fast approaching.  

The classroom and the student who collect the most Box Tops will win a prize.  Each year Box Tops provides nearly a thousand dollars for our PTO. It is easy to help us raise these funds.  All you have to do is take a look at the products already on your pantry shelves. Clip and collect the box tops as you use the products, and check your shelves for any box tops that are expiring soon as once they expire, we can’t collect money for them.  You can attach the box tops to one of the submission forms linked below, or even easier, put them in a ziplock bag. Once you have them collected, send them into school with your child – Don’t forget to label with your child’s full name and classroom.  For a list of participating products see the product list below.

The deadline for your submissions is Friday, February 15th.
