We Need Your Cereal Boxes

Box Tops
We are gearing up for the Spring Box Tops Collection. To make this extra exciting a contest will be held to see which classroom can earn the most money through Box Tops collection.

The spring deadline is Monday, March 2nd for scanning receipts electronically. Make sure you credit your child’s class by typing in the teacher’s name before you submit your receipt, if you don’t that is OK, it will still go to Roosevelt. All clipped Box Tops must be turned in to your child’s classroom teacher by Friday, February 28th in order to participate in the Spring Box Tops Challenge. The classroom that earns the most money through scanned receipts and clipped Box Tops will win a popcorn party. Ms. Wyman’s 3rd grade class were the big winners for the Fall Box Top Challenge and earned a cake pop party. Our goal for the 2019-2020 school year is $1,000. Currently, we are at $767.80. Any questions regarding submitting receipts electronically send an email to or check out the website for more information . As a reminder the clipped box tops will eventually be phased out and the only way to submit will be through scanned receipts with the Box Tops App.
