Box Tops!
With the school year ramping up, our thoughts always turn to BOX TOPS! Well, okay - maybe a few other things as well.

I'm Tracey Bowen and I am Manzano Day School's Box Top Coordinator this year. My son, William, is in Ms Michelle's and Ms Kirsten's kindergarten class.

Last year, the school turned in an amazing 19,456 box tops to receive $1,945.60. This is a worthy goal to meet and one that we will beat this year!

To do this, we need your help. We need Classroom Box Top coordinators to send me an email ( and identify themselves. I'll contact the classroom coordinators to discuss the help we need at the classroom level. Thank You! And let's make this a Great Box Top Year!
