Box Tops for Education

Happy New Year from our Box Tops for Education Team! We hope you had a great summer and have continued to clip your box tops for Monroe over the break. Please feel free to send them in as often as you can as they have helped fund many projects in our school, such as installing Smartboards, helping build our beautiful new playground, and continuing to add new activities to the playground for our students.

Please remember the following while saving box tops. They will not accept any that are expired, torn, or dirty. If you could weed those out before sending them in, the team would be so grateful, as it truly does speed up the clipping and bundling process. Neatly clipping them before sending them in is also a huge help to us, then all we need to do is double check the dates, count and then bundle them.

We will be submitting the first round of box tops early this year, as by doing so; we will be entered in to win bonus box tops for our school, which means extra cash for activities! When we submit by October 2nd, we will be entered in for a chance to win the grand prize of 25,000 ($2,500.00) box tops, one of 15 first prizes of 5,000 ($500) box tops, or 100 second place prizes of 1,000 ($100) box tops! To ensure they get to their destination on time, the box tops will be mailed on September 25, 2015. The next submission date will be March 1st. These will also be mailed out a few days early.

Another thing you can do to help our school earn box tops this year is if you have a Sam’s Club membership, create an account by going here: and follow the instructions on how to submit a receipt when you purchase 3 or more participating box tops items. That will earn Monroe 100 box tops, which equals $10!
