Boxtops 4 Education

Help a classroom win the Box Tops Collection Competition by clipping and submitting.

Last school year, we earned $416.20 for our school from Box Tops and used the money for classroom supplies. This school year, our goal is to earn $1,000+!!

Clipping Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our school, and can be done through the year. Each one is worth 10¢ for our school! Even just one Box Top helps, so please collect them, and send them in the Box Tops bag that came home with all students in the fall. 

Don't forget, if you get your neighbors, family, and friends to help you collect you can really help your class win more prizes, and, in turn, help raise more money for Bache-Martin.
