Box Top Contest!

BoxtopIt is that time once again for our annual Box Top Contest! 


*Contest starts Monday, January 14th and ends on Friday, February 8th.

*The classroom that turns in the most Box Tops will earn an extra 30 minutes of recess along with a popcorn party or an ice cream party.

*Students can turn in a collection sheet with 25 Box Tops on it to earn a small prize.  They can turn in more than one collection sheet to earn multiple prizes.  The Box Tops must be attached to the sheet to earn a prize.  Extra collection sheets are in the office.

*Expired Box Tops will not be counted.

*Each classroom will be given a zip lock bag to put collected Box Tops in.  The teacher will put the Box Tops into the bag each morning and have a student bring them to the office.

*The Box Tops will be counted each day and I will email an update daily.  There will also be a chart in the hallway by the cafeteria with the classroom earnings.

*The zip lock bag will be put back in the classroom teacher’s box for the next day.
