GAME ON, BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION

Fall Box Tops Collection Forms Due: Our first Box Tops for Education collection of clipped Box Tops is ending on Friday, October 18th. If you need the form (or an extra or two for those overachievers :)), you can print it from this LINK. Be sure to include your child’s name and class on the form, because the class submitting the most Box Tops will be rewarded with a special Mystery Prize. Stay tuned for the big reveal!


Box Tops Goes Electronic: And don’t forget about also using the Box Tops app to earn even more cash for our school! Going forward (but not yet ;)), instead of clipping from packages, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipts using the Box Tops mobile app, which is available from the Apple Store or Google Play. For more information, check out this LETTER or head to https://www.boxtops4education.com/. (FYI-Our school is listed as "Bethel Springs Elementary" in Marcus Hook.)


“Give Credit” on the Box Tops Mobile App: When families use the Box Tops app to scan their store receipt, they can "Give Credit" to their student's classroom. To "Give Credit" make sure you have the latest version of the Box Tops app, scan your receipt, then tap the star icon to enter your "Give credit" memo. Please enter the TEACHER NAME in the memo.


The class that turns in the most boxtops (paper and/or electronic) will receive an extra recess and special snack with Mr. Piasecki and Mrs. Allen!!!!
