Please see below for two great ways to maximize Box Tops income for RHE!
Traditional Box Tops clips are being phased out of production, but continue to be found on many products throughout the store. You can still clip and send them to school with your child. Every classroom has a collection bin.
Every valid Box Tops clip is worth 10¢ for RHE.
BUY: BOX TOP PRODUCTS
Look for the logo. You can find it on hundreds of products you know and love.
SCAN: YOUR RECEIPT
No more clipping. Tap the scan button and snap a photo of your receipt within 14 days of purchase.
EARN: CASH FOR RHE
It's that easy! Box Tops earnings are identified and automatically updated online.
On November 14, Caldecott and Coretta Scott King award winner Bryan Collier will be visiting Rolling Hills Elementary School (schedule to follow). Bryan has illustrated such books as Martin’s Big Words, Rosa and Shoe Time co-authored and illustrated with Mo Willems. If you are interested in purchasing any of his books for him to autograph orders are due October 29. They make excellent gifts for the holidays and he has a wide range of interests and topics. Thank you in advance for your support.
