BoxTops For Education is a unique fundraising program for schools that provides a ten cent rebate for each BoxTop submitted. Last year, the PA submitted over 13,000 BoxTops and funded the following grants:
- A fourth grade class created and sold hand-made craft projects to raise funds to help two Syrian refugee families resettle in Hyde Park.
- A fifth grade class purchased supplies to create an art installation project, chronicling the journey of Syrian refugees.
- A second grade class knitted scarves and hats for Chicago’s homeless community.
- Two kindergarten classes took a field trip to a donation center to sort children’s clothes and supplies.
Collection boxes can be found in Blaine Lobby (near the Lower School Office), ESH Lobby (behind the security desk), and U-High lobby. A collection bag with the teacher’s name is posted outside each Lower School homeroom.
