Box Tops for Education
At our school we participate in the Box Tops for Education program. While it is such a simple and easy thing to do, so many people either have no idea about the program, OR they just toss them in the garbage.
My goal was to take an extra 30 seconds to cut out a box top before throwing it in the trash. It is really not a hassle, and as a teacher I realize the importance of taking on such a simple task.
I’ve made it fun for the kids in my class by sending home the Halloween collection sheets. There are all kinds to print out, so that parents will get involved.
I have officially collected over 50 box tops, which is over $5 for the school. That doesn’t sound like much, but it could buy a ream of paper.
Paper is like gold. It’s a precious material in our school, more particularly in kindergarten.
So this is ME encouraging YOU to take 30 seconds and cut it out. Put it in a baggie or print out a sheet for yourself. Give them to a student whose school participates in the program.
