In case you are not familiar with Box Tops this is an easy way to earn money for Fort River….. and is one fund raiser that does not ask for any money….just take your scissors and clip! For each Box Top clipped the school receives 10 cents! How easy is that? So before you recycle the cardboard Zip Lock bag container, tear off the plastic around the Scott Bath Tissue, or throw away the top to the Yoplait Yogurt container take out your scissors. I know I always return my 5 cent cans rather than throw away money and this is the same for Fort River.
This year, our goal is to raise $500.00 for our school. So far this year we have collected 670 box tops and are 67.00 towards that goal. (Last year we only earned 98.00….some schools in our area earned over $2,000.00!). The collection box is on the table in the Front Office. This is one way relatives can help support your child’s school. (My children’s aunt and 95 year old grandmother clip) Every Box Top clipped will help Fort River School continue to provide quality education for our kids! NEXT REDEMPTION IS END of October so clip and send in your Box Tops by Friday October 26.
If you would like to learn about the other ways you can make a difference sign up for the Box Tops website at boxtops4education.com. It’s easy, free and you’ll learn about new ways to help our school earn the extra cash it needs. Here's a link to the Box Tops product list.
