Box Tops for Education: Help us WIN!!

Every single class at Sweeny is in a competition to collect the most Box Tops. Each class that collects at least 1000 box tops will get an extra recess with pop-ices, and the winning class will get an extra surprise!

All the money comes right back to our classroom for me to spend on the students. I usually buy things like books, math manipulatives, and this year I am looking into buying a program called MobyMax that the kids LOVED. The free sample is over and despite getting great data from the program we were unable to use district funds for it, so I would LOVE to collect enough box tops to continue using all the great features the kids enjoyed!

Each box top you send in is worth 10 cents for us to spend. It doesn't sound like much, but they can really add up. Ask relatives and friends if they have any extra box tops they aren't using. Most people don't mind cutting them out and saving them if you ask:)
