Box Tops For Education
Follow this link to learn more about Box Tops: http://www.boxtops4education.com/about
Box Tops labels are worth 10 cents each. They can be collected at home each month and then sent to school with your child. Each month three trophies are awarded - the class with the most Box Tops turned in during the month, the class with the highest number of Box Tops per student average and the class with the second highest number of Box Tops per student average. Pictures are taken of the winning classes. This is a GREAT way to get the children involved in fundraising for the school. Kids love to find the Box Top labels on grocery items, cut them out and save them in a bag to then bring to school.
Several times throughout the school year a parent volunteer counts the collected Box Tops and mails them in so that the PTC receives a check. Since 2012, the PTC has received $5,413 through this fundraising effort.
Note: Winners are color coded accordingly below.
Labels for Education
Please send clipped labels for education to school with your child. They are collected and sent in and the school receives funds. You may access a complete list of participating products by using the following link: http://www.labelsforeducation.com/Earn-Points/Participating-Products
