Box Tops

Students may bring all box tops to the school and turn them in to their teachers or drop them into the designated collection containers in the Learning Center. 

Clip labels, place them in an envelope or zip top baggie, and label the bag with the teacher's name and grade.

Each year, we hold a classroom contest to see who can bring in the most box tops and labels. These contests begin at the start of the school year and run until May, with the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners winning their choice of a pizza party or an ice cream party. There are also other contests throughout the year with various prizes.
