The next BOXTOP deadline (February 18) is quickly approaching! We have already turned in about $585.00 in boxtops for the year. Can you help us reach our goal of $1,000?

To help us reach our goal:

  • ask family, friends, grandparents to save boxtops for our school
  • check your packages for boxtops
  • cut out and trim your boxtops
  • check expiration dates (must be March 2015 or later)
  • count out boxtops into bundles of 50 and put each bundle into a
  • plastic or ziploc bag
  • keep BONUS boxtops separate from the bundles of 50, count how many you have and turn those in separately
  • Write your family name on the bags. We hope to give out a prize to the ICS family that turns the most boxtops in from our last collection date in October until February 18.

Contact Deanne Dekkers if you have any questions. Thank you!
