$700 more box tops!! WOW!

Don't forget...
If you LOVE us bring us your box tops by Valentines Day!!

We are so much closer to our goal - in the last 25 days students and friends have brought in just over $700 in box tops to the school!! WOW! and THANK YOU!! Don't forget to keep bringing them even after this first deadline -- our goal by the end of the year is $3,500 worth. We have updated our thermometer so you can see. We will get one posted in the school as well. Look for box tops on pizzas, cereal, granola bars, socks & underwear (that's right!!). I found a box top on a package of plastic cups the other day. So make an effort or have your kids look and clip those tops off and send them to school. I clip my box tops off my cereal boxes BEFORE I put them in the cupboard, that way they don't accidentally get thrown away when the box it empty.
