BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
The Box Tops for Education program allows some of your regular grocery items to raise funds for your school at no extra cost to you! Just find the Box Tops coupon on participating products, cut it out, and bring it to school. Coupons are a little bigger than a postage stamp and are most often located on the top of packaging - look closely to find them! You can find Box Tops on everything from pre-packaged meals like Progresso's Chicken Noodle Soup to paper products like Kleenex and popular cereal brands like Cheerios. To find out if your regular groceries include participating products, check the long and varied list of "Participating Products" at the Box Tops for Education website. Coupons are worth 10 cents each, but every little bit helps! The more families participate, the more we can collect to benefit BEH. You may drop any coupons you collect in the manilla "PTA Box Tops Envelope" posted on the PTA bulletin board at the school's main entrance, or you may give them to your child's teacher. Our Box Tops Coordinator will submit them to redeem their value for our school.
