Box Tops--DUE FEB 7

There are only two dates that we can turn in Box Tops. One in November and One in March. Please continue to turn them in, but if you are saving them please turn them in by Feb 7 so they can go on this upcoming count. The money earned for the box tops goes directly to the teacher's classroom your child is in*.  Please DO NOT staple the box tops to the paper, as each box top has to be cut out with no excess around the rectangle as shown below. If you can take a few minutes and clean your box tops that would save our PTA volunteers many hours of work. 

*I always do half for one teacher and then the other half between my two students so the teachers get equal amount from my household.
