Box Tops

The Box Tops for Education program is changing the way we can earn cash for our school! Over the summer, participating brands have begun to change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops label.

Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. The Box Tops for Education team has worked hard to build a NEW-and-improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app, available now.

• Use the app to snap a photo of your receipt within 14 days of purchase.

• The app scans your store receipt, finds Box Tops products and instantly adds cash to our school earnings online.

How Can You Help?

DOWNLOAD the NEW Box Tops app and select Silver Springs Elementary. This ensures that your Box Tops purchases count toward our school's earnings.

SHOP for Box Tops products and scan your receipt in the app to instantly add cash to our school’s earnings online.

LOOK for any remaining Box Tops clips on packages. Clip them and send them to school!

TIP: You can "double-dip" on these products by clipping the traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt with the app.

Our next Box Top Drive will begin in October!



Do you have a quality camera, enjoy taking pictures, and have a few hours to volunteer at Silver Springs?

We are looking for a photographer to take pictures of our new and kindergarten students for the why you matter campaign.

We need about 3-4 hours of your time (date/times TBD) before October 11th.

Interested? Contact Kristin Gifford at kmgifford327@gmail.com

Yearbook Committee Plea

The Silver Springs Yearbook Committee is looking for creative volunteers to help make the yearbook a success for the kids today and a treasure for years to come. If you enjoy taking pictures or working on your home computer designing online scrapbooks, please consider joining this fun committee. Parents enrich the school community through their participation and generosity. This is a great way to get in those volunteer hours on your time as the bulk of the work is done from home.

If you are interested in volunteering on the yearbook committee, please email micklashmelissa@gmail.com to learn more!

Would you like to see more photos of your child in the yearbook? We need your help getting photos of as many students as possible! Please send any fun photos of 2019-2020 school year Silver Spring activities (this includes back to school photos, Halloween and other holiday class parties, assemblies, etc) to micklashmelissa@gmail.com.

Yearbook Committee Chairs,

Kristin Gifford and Melissa Micklash
