Keep Clipping Those Box Tops!


Hello Everyone!

With the holiday season fast approaching, I wanted to give you the latest information on where we are at with our Box Tops For Education Campaign.

As of Sunday, December 10, we have collected a total of 9,853 box tops! The top five classroom leaders are:

Ms Craft with 1,364 box tops
Ms Junick with 812 box tops
Ms Kimbrough with 800 box tops
Ms Hausenfleck with 787 box tops
Ms Ortega with 697 box tops

I'll wait until I receive box tops from this last week (ending December 15) before I send in another "chunk" of box tops for credit. According to the Box Tops for Education website, a check has not yet been disbursed to the school for the first milestone (November 1st). I'm sure Manzano Day School will see a check sometime in December, which is the month that a disbursement is scheduled. Something to look out for are those box tops that expire on December 31, 2017. While the holidays will keep us busy, don't forget to keep clipping box tops!

Now - for a couple of important upcoming dates. Box tops season ends on Wednesday, February 28, 2018. The last day that I will collect box tops is the preceding Friday, February 23. This will allow me time to review the most recent submissions, package them, and send them in for credit. Box tops submitted to me after that date will be bagged and saved for box tops season the following year which begins in September, 2018. This brings up another topic that I will again mention in subsequent updates. Box tops can and should be collected all year round. Doing so will allow Manzano Day School to get "a head start" on box top season when it rolls around again next year.

That's all I have for now. Keep clipping and Happy Holidays!
