ONGOING PTO FUNDRAISERS

Box Tops for Education

Clipping and submitting those 10¢ coupons really do add up! Last year we earned over $1,066 for our school and classrooms. Since Bridgeway started collecting, back in 2012 we’ve earned over $6,900! If you are new to the program, you can register as a Bridgeway supporter at BTFE.com and see a complete list of products where you can find Box Tops. Have friends, family and neighbors sign up to donate online as well.

Our goal for the year is $1,500. Let’s hit the ground running and turn in those Box Tops you’ve been clipping and saving all summer!

Our next submission for the 2017-2018 school year is 02/23/18.

 

Please clip and send them to the school office or to your student's teacher in a plastic bag and we will turn them in to get money for our school!  Be sure to put your student's name on the bag or sheet to get credit for the class contest.

For more information, visit: www.boxtops4education.com.
