More great ideas from our Home & School Association!

Box Tops are SNOW wonderful! Box Tops for Education is one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs and is an easy way to raise money for SPC. Many companies participate in the Box Tops program; examples include Ziploc (plastic bags), Progresso (soup), General Mills (Cheerios, Chex, Nature Valley granola bars), Scott (Kleenex facial tissues, paper towels), Annie’s (organic foods), Betty Crocker (baking products), Land O Lakes (butter, margarine), Hefty (garbage bags, disposable cups and plates), and Mott’s (applesauce and apple juice). Attached is a list of product brands that participate in Box Tops for Education.

Since Box Tops are SNOW wonderful, let’s see how many we can collect during this snowy time! Students can turn the Box Tops into their teachers. You can always turn them in at the EGC office or the collection box in the UGC hallway.

TRIP - We will be in the UGC every Friday morning between 8:00 - 9:00 a.m.   We will have cards for purchase (cash or check) that can be taken home with you! Buy cards for your everyday shopping or to give as gifts!
