Box Tops

It has come our attention that not everyone knows that we collect Coke products points (caps and carton tickets) as well as Box Tops!  Coke products include lots of drinks apart from the obvious ones!  Check the caps and packaging for codes - then send them in to be processed.

Both of these resources bring in money for the school.  Please collect them and send in to the office. Penny Gonzalez will make sure they are packaged and sent off to their appropriate destinations!  


Please don't wait to send in loads of Box Tops because they do have expiration dates.

We used to collect Campbell's Labels, but the company has decided to discontinue this project.
