Since 2010 the school has earned a total of $2,946.50!, ten cents at a time! It’s amazing what a community can come together.

I would like to thank all of the parents and community members that have taken the time to clip and send in Box Tops from products that you purchase. Each Box Top equals money for the school, so keep up the good work! Please keep an eye out for products that carry the Box Tops for Education logo and feel free to send them in anytime.

Happy Clipping!
