Box Tops for Education - “I scream, You scream, We ALL scream for… BOX TOPS!”
August is nearly complete- our first month of school is almost a memory! Where has the time gone? It has been a great start to our school year, and everyone seems rejuvenated and refreshed, ready to make 2018-2019 the best school year yet at North Side. As our school year begins, so does our efforts in collecting Box Tops.
Box Tops for Education is a fantastic opportunity allowing schools to help them raise some needed funds to support their students. Each Box Top collected awards the school with $.10. This might not seem like a fortune, but with everyone working together, we can bring in a lot of money by simply cutting out a tiny square of cardboard or plastic! Companies like General Mills, Kleenex, Ziploc, Yoplait, and Old El Paso (and many more) support the Box Tops for Education program. Please visit www.boxtops4education.com to find more companies who support it, as well as ways to earn extra Box Tops. You can also download the Box Tops Bonus app onto your phone to find ways to collect more (it is VERY easy to do and use, but it requires you to take photos of your receipt, and sometimes those receipts are rather long!). Finally, you can join the North Side Box Tops page on Facebook. Search for “@BoxTopsAtNorthSide” to find it!
This year’s theme is “I scream, You scream, We all scream for...BOX TOPS!” Each classroom at North Side will have their own “cone” outside of their classroom. Each Box Tops sheet completed and returned to the school will earn their class a “scoop” of ice cream. Prizes will be awarded for every 7th sheet turned in. The class at the end of the school year who’s collected the most sheets will be awarded a Grand Prize.
You can start sending Box Tops sheets in with your child after we return from Labor Day weekend. Please make sure you’ve attached each Box Top securely to the submission page in the spot they are needed (staples, glue sticks, or a strip of Scotch tape work best- rolled tape on the back of each Box Top does not work well). A collection sheet is coming home soon with your child. If you need more Box Tops sheets, you can pick them up in the North Side office or notify your child’s classroom teacher.
Be sure to invite your family, friends, neighbors, church friends, and our local businesses to help! The more Box Tops we can collect, the more money we can earn to benefit our students!
Thank you so much for supporting this program- we are looking forward to another banner year with Box Tops!
