What's Happening with Box Tops?
Box Tops is still going strong this school year! In November, 125 were collected from 2nd grade  and in December, 7th and 8th grade 895 Box Tops were collected! (A big thank you to Jessica Phelps for helping with this program!) Both classrooms won a party, and because each Box Top is valued at $.10, earned money for Shepherd! Woohoo!
And the Results Are...
God has blessed Shepherd over the past few years by allowing us to participate in several programs to give us third source funding.  Specifically, on the average, Box Tops proceeds are $1,000 and Street Smarts $425, per school year. Keep on turning in Box Tops to the office or into the classroom boxes to win a party! Also, when deciding where to shop, consider The Streets of SouthGlenn for Street Smarts points. You can also submit SouthGlenn receipts dated back to August 15, 2018. Let's make this year the best yet to help our school budget!
