Box Tops Collection
We need your Box Tops! The Fall Box Tops deadline is approaching! There are two ways to participate:
1. Clip Box Tops and turn them into your child’s classroom teacher.
2. Download the Box Top app and scan your receipts. The link to download the app is here.
When you submit a receipt through the app, please make sure you add your child’s teacher’s name to the “credit” memo for each scan. This allows you to tag your earnings to a specific classroom teacher. If you shop for groceries online you can now submit your email receipts from select retailers.

Starting Oct.1st – 28th, the teacher/classroom with the highest number of clipped Box Tops or scanned receipts will win a Cake Pop Party sponsored by the PTA! So, download that app and scan your receipts OR clip those box tops and turn them into your child’s teacher. Please email any questions to
