Box Tops for Education

The Box Top Program is now digital with their mobile app! When you purchase qualifying items simply scan your receipt using the Box Tops app and cash will be added to our school account. You have 14 days from the date of purchase to scan the receipt, making it more convenient to use. Go to for a complete list of companies and their products that participate in their program.

With each Box top bringing in 10 cents, this is the quickest and easiest method to provide funding that will support our school and your children. If you still have Box Tops at home please send them to school in a ziplock or envelope, as they will expire. If you have any questions, please contact Preeti Singh at .
