Clip More to Earn More!
Box Tops for Education. Clip more to Earn More!
It’s time to get cutting and save those Box Tops!  Box Tops for Education is a fun and easy way to help support our schools. All you have to do is clip Box Tops coupons from hundreds of family products from brands like Cheerios®, Betty Crocker®, Pillsbury®, Ziploc®, Kleenex®, Juicy Juice® and more! Send them in with your child, or drop them off in either school office. Our budget for the 2017–2018 school year is $900. If every child sent in 15 Box Tops this year, we’d exceed our goal! Each Box Top is worth 10¢. Please get clipping and let’s earn some easy money for our schools.

Questions can be directed to  Tiffany Scheller .
