Box Tops Contest

Box Tops Contest

Congratulations to Ms. Watson's class for winning the fall Box Tops collection contest! They earned a popsicle party by collecting 668 Box Tops to help us on on our way to our goal of $1000 this year. So far this school year, your Box Tops submissions have earned Rolling Hills $508.90! Way to go Puma Families!

Box Tops are a great way to contribute to our school with no cost to your family. Simply cut out the Box Tops from products you use at home (a complete list of products with Box Tops can be found at www.BTFE.com), make sure they are not expired, and send them to school with your students in a Zip Lock baggie or GLUED to a collection sheet (sent home monthly with your student). Each classroom has a collection envelope that is checked weekly.

Our spring collection contest is now under way. The students will be competing to see which class can submit the most Box Tops. The winning class will earn a party so send those Box Tops in! Ready, set...submit!
