HELP EARN CASH FOR YOUR SCHOOL!
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION & CAMPBELL’S SOUP LABELS
Congratulations to Jensen Billotte in Mrs. McCallum’s class and to Gabby Lim in Mrs. Anderson’s class! Jensen and Gabby are our October & November
Box Tops/Soup Labels winners!
We will announce our December winner as soon as students return back to school in January, so make sure to save your Box Tops and Soup Labels over the holidays!
Important: Please send your labels or Box Tops in a plastic zip lock bag with your child’s name, teacher’s name and grade neatly printed on a piece of paper inside the bag. This is really important so that I can make sure your child gets credit for their submitted labels and Box Tops. Please trim along the dotted lines on the Box Top or Soup Labels as it helps us get them processed much faster. Unfortunately, we cannot accept Box Tops that have expired or are missing the expiration date.
If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Kosmala, 404-661-8907 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
