Box Tops Are Digital

Box tops are going digital! Signing up is simple, quick and free.  Get the app on your phone, scan your receipts and you’ll see just how easy it is.  See flyer  here.


As we transition to digital Box Tops, we WILL be having a Box Top Collection Contest between now and Friday, OCTOBER 25th .

The class that turns in the most physical Box Tops will win a “make your own slime” party.  Box Tops should be sent to school in a ziploc bag with your child’s name AND their teacher’s name.  Please do not drop off at the front office.

Don’t forget to go digital and get the app in this transition period so we can DOUBLE our Box Tops getting credit for BOTH physical Box Tops and digital!
