Collecting Box Tops is a very easy way to help our school! You might think they are only worth 10 cents, but when collected by many, they really add up! This was with only a small portion of our school population participating. Just think what we could do if everyone clipped those little rectangles! You can find Box Tops on thousands of your favorite products, from cereals to Avery Office Products to Hanes T-shirts to printer paper.___________________________________________
