Collecting Box Tops for Education
Fun Fact: Every single box top that we submit earns our school 10 cents! Just think of how much we could raise if everyone at the school submitted all the box tops that usually get thrown in the recycling bin! It's easy to help. Just grab a bag, label it "Box Tops" and keep it in your kitchen. Every time you see a box top, tear it off and throw it in the bag. We will cut them down to size, so you can literally send in a chunk of the box if you can't find your kitchen shears! The student who brings in the most box tops will get to treat his or her classmates to popsicles during lunch! Please submit your bag, with your student & teacher name included, to the front office no later than 10/25, c/o Box Tops. Please contact Sienna Johnson, email@example.com with questions.
