Box Tops for Education


We are collecting Box Top coupons to raise money for our school. Please submit your collection of box tops to the office or to your advisor.   

Did you know that some local schools raise thousands of dollars for their schools each year, just from clipping and submitting Box Tops?  Box Top coupons are on the packaging of hundreds of participating products that you probably use every day.  All you need to do is cut them off of the box they are on, stick them in a baggie, and send them to school with your child. Thanks for choosing to support our school by collecting Box Tops! 


We are also collecting Tyson labels. Click below for more information.
