BOX TOPS MAKE A DIFFERENCE AT MIDDLE SCHOOL SOUTH

We have great news! We will have the incentive program here at Middle School South! It was proven success last year at MSS and we want to continue for students and parents to turn trash into cash! The cash for the Box Tops program helps with many things including new technology for Middle School South. We hope you will help us meet our Box Top goal this year!


Remember to collect those BOX TOPS over the summer to help your upcoming class win some cool prizes!
