Our Fall Book Fair was a HUGE Success!

On behalf of our PTA...THANK YOU for supporting the Fall Scholastic Book Fair! This year's profits earned about $2000.00 for our Media Center!

REMINDER: Box Top Contest continues!

As we continue to prepare for all the wonderful holidays, be sure you keep an eye out for Box Tops on the items you purchase for meals. Make sure to also scan your receipts to the app. Your family and friends can participate by clipping Box Tops or scan their receipts to the new app. Clipping Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our school. Each one is worth 10¢!

Since there has been a change to the program, it is difficult to keep track of classroom earnings individually. Instead of rewarding the top class, we will have a whole school reward. The goal for the first contest is $100. Turn in your clipped Box Tops to your Teacher on Monday,January 6, 2020.

For more information on Box Tops, including a list of participating products, go to BTFE.com. Be sure to sign up as a member (it’s free!) so you can check out our school’s earnings details and get access to coupons and bonus offers.

If you have any questions, please contact me at OPEBoxTops@gmail.com

Thank you for your participation,

Jennifer Bugajski

Be sure to download the new app or update your existing app by going to BTFE.COM
