Box Tops For Education

September 12, 2017

Hello Parents!

My name is Malia Nelson and I’m thrilled to be our school’s Box Tops for Education™ Coordinator.

Clipping Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our school. Each one is worth 10¢ for our school! Just look for the pink Box Tops on hundreds of products. All you have to do is clip them and send them to school.

Our goal this school year is to earn $1000. I know it can be done with your help!

For more information on Box Tops, including a list of participating products, go to 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.

There is a MAILBOX in the front hall of the school for the box tops collection. When you put your box top collection in the mailbox make sure you label the bag or envelope with the grade level your child is in so it can count for their grade level. If not it will go toward miscellaneous and not a grade level. The grade with the most brought in before the collection date, will receive a treat.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m here to help make our school’s Box Tops for Education™ program a success this year.

Thanks for your help!

Malia Nelson

Phone: 832-515-9384


Last year, Mittelstadt received over $1,000.00 from Box Tops! Let's set a new record this year!

Latest from the Library

I am very proud of our Mittelstädt Patriots that have returned their summer reading logs, which were calendars this year. They are receiving a prize in the library. We will be having our Character Parade Friday, September 29th. Are you thinking about a costume? Come dressed that day as your favorite storybook character.

Third – Fifth Graders have begun reading books from the Patriot List. When they have reached their grade level goal, they will earn a free Patriot Reading Crew t-shirt! A complete list of books can be found on the library web site.

We will also continue to have the Birthday Book Club. Parents, grandparents, and friends may surprise a student by donating a new book to the library in honor of his/her birthday or other special event. We will have a special selection of NEW books in the library office from which you may choose. There is a set price of $15.00 for all Birthday Book Club books. A decorative bookplate with your child’s name and birth date will be permanently placed in the front of the book. On the date you select, a special presentation will be made to him/her in his classroom or in the library. Your child will be the first to check out the book and may enjoy it for up to two weeks before returning it to the library. The book will become a permanent part of the Mittelstädt library and will be shared and enjoyed by many Patriots to come. In addition, your child’s name will be displayed in the library on our Star Birthday Book Club wall. This is such a unique and personal way to say “Happy Birthday” and at the same time, add wonderful new books to our library. Students with summer birthdays may be celebrated at any time during the school year.

See you in the library!
