Boxtops Reminder

Please continue to turn in your box tops to school with your child! We are accepting cut box tops. However the program is changing over to an app that requires you to scan your receipt. In lieu of downloading the Box Tops app, you may simply send in your Box Tops receipts in a labeled envelope to school and we will do the scanning for you now! We are accepting Box Tops until winter break! You do not need to wait till the last minute; you can turn box tops in on a weekly basis!

Changes in Box Tops for Education Program

The Box Tops for Education Program is changing the way we can earn cash for our school!
In addition to the traditional Box Top Clips new Box Top Labels are introduced which allow earning Box Tops by digitally scanning your receipts. A user friendly mobile app is available now on App Store and Google Play to help scan the receipts and earn for our school.

Please look at this flyer for further instructions and see how a Box Top Label looks like. You can learn more about these changes at BTFE.COM
