Box tops are not a major fundraiser but are a way to help the school raise funds throughout the year. Our goal last year was $1,000.00. Lets meet and exceed this next year!

The Box Tops for education program has heard our complaints about clipping! A *BRAND NEW* Box Top App for mobile devices. Just go to your App Store on your mobile device and download the app. You will feature state of the art technology that will allow you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to your schools earnings online! How great is that. Just look for the new Box Tops image for products

already set up for this. This will take some time to fully be implemented for

all products so until then you can still clip those not yet set up. 

For all of those items not yet set up, just send them in and we will do the rest. We know your time is limited and we know its a tedious trust us, we know. We re-clip each and every box top to make sure they will be accepted. We have a wonderful Box Tops Committee who multi tax while watching their childs sporting events. Please make sure you send in the entire box top. Box tops sent in with information missing or ripped are not accepted.
