Box Tops for Education
We are having a Box Top collection contest during the 2018-2019 school year. We will collect Box Tops from each class.
Box Tops Tips:
Please trim all excess off of all labels prior to turning them in; it saves us time and shipping. Please use the attached collection sheet and either glue or tape the box top in the square. Each filled page of box tops will amount to $3.00 and will be counted toward your child’s class. Please check the expiration dates prior to sending in. Bonus Box Tops have to be kept separate from regular box tops. Please make sure your child’s name and teacher are printed on the collection sheet. If you need more collection sheets, contact the office or your child’s teacher.
We have started a NEW school year with NEW points to gain for the upcoming school year!
We now have 123 supporters. Every little amount helps, so between Shoparoo, Box Tops, and any other initiative we take on, we can earn cash rewards for our school and avoid fundraising as much as possible.
Tell your friends and family to join in as a supporter and start scanning!
What Will Shoparoo Funds Help Purchase?
We need more technology for our students to support our efforts in preparing kids for a future we cannot even imagine! This means devices that help kids learn Computer Science skills, such as coding, along with basic computer skills.
Shoparoo funds can also support learning materials such as math manipulatives, books, and playground equipment.
This year we are excited to be partnering with a fun, free, and truly easy fundraiser called Shoparoo! Schools nationwide are already earning hundreds and even thousands every year through Shoparoo and it’s a great opportunity for us to really make a difference this year!
Get started today:
1. Download the free Shoparoo app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store
2. Select our school from the list and start taking pictures of your receipts - shop anywhere, buy anything!
3. The first 20 supporters at our school will earn an extra $1 donation from Shoparoo for their first receipt!
4. Earn even more Roo Points, or cash donations, by inviting others to join using your personal referral code
5. You can even select a grade to support and have fun with grade competitions!
There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo - the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school. Schools with just 40 supporters are earning an average of $1,000 every year. That’s free, easy money that we could be fundraising too. Check out shoparoo.com to learn more about this awesome app!
Thank you for your support!
