We did a great job synergizing to earn additonal money for our school by turning in box tops! Every little top helps! We collected...1255 tops! This is fantastic considering we had so many snow days and winter break! This year we earned just over $642 for our school. We are still counting until the end of the month, so if you find any additonal box tops at home, please bring them in! Thank you Silver Springs families!


We had 50 participants turn in Box Tops! Thank you! Every name was entered into a drawing for a Target or Barnes & Noble gift card. The winner of the Target gift card in Lower Elementary is Evelyn in Mrs. Sepich's class! The winner of the Barnes & Noble gift card in Upper Elementary is Christina in Mrs. Starosciak's class! Congratulations Evelyn and Christina! Enjoy shopping!


The classes with the most Box Tops are Mrs. Sepich (Lower El) with 252 box tops and Mr. Kiebler (Upper El) with 158 box tops! Enjoy your hat day!


Please remember you can turn in Box Tops at any time during the year! We can do it Silver Springs! You can drop them off in the wooden stand near the front door of our school. Thanks for synergizing to do great things for our school!
