Box Tops For Education Program

New this year, Box Tops is transitioning their program from clipping to a mobile app where you can scan your receipts. Download the app on your smart phone and scan your receipts within 14 days of purchase. It’s that easy! If you still have traditional “clip it” box tops at home, make sure to send them in to the school office. We will still earn money for all clipped box tops until they expire.

Early Childhood Screening – Yes, you should complete this, even if you haven’t yet!

If you have a son or daughter who is between the ages of 3 and starting Kindergarten, now is the time to make your appointment for Early Childhood Screening! This is an important screening for both your child’s physical development (they screen both hearing and vision) and their emotional and academic growth. Appointments typically take 1 hour and your child will enjoy working with 1-2 specialists (depending on the district). Below you will find the links to sign up depending on what school district your mailing address falls into. ***Remember, this is highly recommended for our preschool enrollment as well as our Kindergarten class.

District 622 - Maplewood, North St. Paul, Oakdale
