Box Tops for Education

We know many of you have been clipping and saving those Box Tops for Education all summer long-- thank you! Please deposit them in the Box Tops for Education collection box in the Administration building or send them in to your student's homeroom teacher. Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for the School to earn money for student supplies and much more. Keep clipping! We collect them all year.

Have a great week!
