Box Tops

Don't Forget to Bring in Your Box Tops!

The class with the most box tops wins an ice cream party

Our first box top collection for the year starts September 24th and ends October 26th. Make sure to put them in a Ziploc bag labeled with your teacher's name and drop them in the collection box in the lobby. If we reach our goal of 10,000 collectively as a school, we will have a Rock and Roll Wednesday!

PLEASE take a few minutes to trim the excess cardboard. This must be done before they can be submitted and we have a limited number of volunteers.
