Bring Your Box Tops by February 20!

February 15, 2015 Leave a comment


Box Tops Collection

Through February 20, 2015

Start clipping for great class prizes! Prizes will be given to the three classes collecting the most box tops.

Box Tops are an easy way to earn money for Linden to support educational and recreational activities for the kids. Check those packages in the pantry. If there’s a Box Top logo, clip it and bring it to school. For every Box Top collected, Linden receives 10 cents.

We have nearly 400 kids at Linden. If every child brought in 10 Box Tops, the school would earn $400. If every child brought in 25 Box Tops, the total would be $1000! So, spread the word — ask your neighbors, friends, and family if they have Box Tops!

Simply send the Box Tops to school with your child to turn in to their homeroom teacher. If you drop them at the main office instead, be sure to label with your child’s name and homeroom number.
