The BOX TOP deadline is TWO weeks away, October 21

Please turn in all your box Tops by this date. It would be helpful to check expiration dates and count them out into groups of 50, but we will except all non-expired box tops if you don’t have time to count them.

This is a great way for our school to earn money by using the box tops off of products we already use.



Meetings times will be 6:30 – 8:00 for both groups.
