BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Did you know that our school can raise thousands of dollars each year through the Box Tops for Education Program?
Here are two ways to generate money for our school:
Your on-line purchases at major stores such as Target, Pottery Barn and Nordstrom. Just register at www.BTFE.com, visit the Marketplace section, shop, and earn, earn, earn.
Clip the pink Box Top logo on participating products and send them in to school with your child in an envelope marked “Box Tops”. Collection boxes are in the Main Office and in each classroom. Check your pantry for products listed below.
Incentive: When the box in the classroom is filled, that class will get a new toy or game for indoor recess.
Shopping via the www.btfw.com Marketplace will earn us a percentage of your order. A $200 order at Lands End would give Hurlbutt $10 instantly. If you do your holiday shopping on-line then this is a great way to give back while you shop. It is that quick and easy.
Each Box Top clipping is worth ten cents, and you would be amazed how these dimes add up! You can make this a household treasure hunt and enlist your children to find as many products as they can within your household and even when they go and visit grandma and grandpa (just remind them to ask before they clip). SeniorCenters and other community groups can get involved as well.
Our goal for this year is to reach $4,000 so please start shopping on-line and start clipping now. The more help we receive the more money that goes back into the classrooms and playgrounds.
We generally use the money to buy new playground equipment and games used for indoor recess but we are open to other suggestions. One suggestion is to improve the blacktop play area and add a map of the U.S., hopscotch and other game boards.
