Box Top Collection Sheet & Special Back-to-School Sheet



Box Top Collection Sheets


Please keep collecting those Box Tops for Education. They are a great way to gain extra funds for our school. The first deadline for prizes this year is September 29, 2017. Click here for the special form for Fall. Just tape or glue your box tops onto the sheet & turn them into your teacher by 9/29/17. The forms do not need to be filled in completely. Just send in what you have by the deadline.  Please double-check the expiration dates before securing them to the sheets. We cannot submit expired box tops. 

The winners of our first round of prizes will be announced in October.

If you have any questions, please contact our Box Tops Coordinator, Val Desir at breval06@yahoo.com.



If you've collected a lot of box tops over the summer, you can also use the traditional 50 Box Tops collection sheet. Please check the expiration dates on your box tops before submitting.
