BoxTops For Education is a unique fundraising program for schools that provides a ten cent rebate for each BoxTop submitted. BoxTops can be found on many common grocery and household items. Please check your pantry, refrigerator and freezer and clip BoxTops coupons for the Parents’ Association. Last year, the P.A. collected over $1,300 from the BoxTops for Education campaign. All proceeds from BoxTops are used by the P.A. to support teachers’ community service grants.
