Box Tops

Box Tops Did you know we collect General Mills Box Tops for Education to earn money for our school throughout the year. Just clip, save in a small pile at home, place them in a baggie and write the count on the outside of the bag with their teacher's name then send it to school in your child's backpack. It's that easy. Every single Box Top adds up to "free money" for our school. If you have any questions about either of these programs, or need help, just email Tonia Bledsoe at Tbledsoe16@gmail.com .
