Box Tops for Education Program - 


Box Tops can be found on hundreds of everyday products. Each time you clip one and send it in, the school receives $0.10 (free money!). While this doesn’t sound like a lot, when pooled together, the earnings can be significant for our school.  

So how can you help? When you shop in stores and online, look for products with the box top label above. Clip these and send them into school with your child. There will be collection bins in each classroom. We will collect, count and record the number of box tops received. Box tops will be collected from the classroom bins on the last Friday of every month. We will have a friendly contest among the students to see which class can collect the most. Prizes will be determined based on age. More details to come on the contest and awards in coming weeks.  

You can also log on to and play games, find coupons and many other ways we can earn additional box tops and dollars for our school!  For additional information, please contact our Box Tops coordinators:  Melissa Rubinich at and Kristen Storti at
