BoxTops fall campaign has begun. Help fund classroom activities

Please take a moment to look through your pantry, freezer, and kitchen drawers to clip BoxTop coupons for the Parents’ Association. Your BoxTops help support community service grants for teachers at ESH and in the Lower School.

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.
