News from Box Tops for Education, Price Chopper “Tools for Schools” and Tops Markets “Tops in education” coordinators, Ann & Kristin.
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome back all our students and our new Pre-K students. We hope everyone had a great summer vacation and are eager to begin this school year. I know we are!
We are hoping to have a great year with our projects. Following is a brief explanation of those projects.
Box Tops for Education are found on many food products. Simply cut the Box Tops from those items, put them in a bag or envelope of your choice and drop it in the mailbox located in the outer lobby of the elementary school. PLEASE put your child’s full name and teacher on the bag/envelope too. The PTSA receives $.10 for each Box Top. Collection sheets can also be found on the table and are changed every Friday. If you want, your child can color the sheets and we will display them on our “Wall of Art.” The Box Tops will be removed and recorded for your child, then the collection sheet displayed on the wall.
The Price Chopper “Tools for Schools” is an easy one. Simply register your Advantage card at any Price Chopper store or register your card on line. Be sure to indicate that your school of choice is Warrensburg New York. That is very important. Each time you swipe your card at checkout, we earn points. Then our teachers are able to shop the PC catalog for items for their classrooms. Brochures with all the information can be found on the table in the outer lobby.
Our last project is Tops Markets “Tops in Education.” It is basically the same as the Price Chopper card/swipe at checkout. You must re-register your Tops Markets card each school year. The store office personnel can assist you with this application.
Please follow the PTSA on Facebook. I know they are planning another BoxTops contest, and lots of additonal activities as well.
The Labels for Education program closed in June so no more Labels can be submitted.
We are hoping for a great and successful year with our projects. Let’s make this year an even bigger and better year. We know you can do it!:)
