Box Tops: Box Tops for Education - Congratulations to Isabella Minoui, Grade 4...winner of the November Box Tops Collection Drawing. Her prize was a $10 Scrip Gift Card to Barnes and Noble! 

The next Collection Day for traditional Box Tops Clips will be this Friday, Dec. 13th after Flag Salute.  Please attach your unexpired Box Tops Clips to the enclosed Collection Sheet, using tape or glue. Every 10 Clips submitted equals one entry in the drawing for a $10 Scrip Gift Card. Remember, you can submit a traditional box top AND scan your receipt for certain brands, such as Annie's, General Mills Cereals, Nature Valley, Paper-Mate and Yoplait.

The Box Tops App has an updated feature allowing users to "Give Credit". After capturing your receipt photo in the app (but before tapping Submit), tap on "Credit" in the lower-left corner. Type your student's name/grade in the box, tap Done, then tap Submit. The Coordinator can then track your receipt scans for entry in the gift card drawings. Every $1.00 scanned in the App in Nov-Dec will count for TWO drawing entries!
