Box Tops for Pizza

Classes will compete in a friendly race to collect the most Box Tops by April 1st.

Collection will begin on March 1st – start clipping and saving those Box Tops!

The class with the most Box Tops collected will be gifted a pizza party!

Important things to know:

– the box tops do not need to be cleanly cut to be turned in

– you must be able to see the expiration date for submission

– expired Box Tops can not be submitted and can be disposed of

Once we send in all of our Box Tops, our school will receive a check, and the winning class can vote on what DMS project/need gets the funds.

So send your box tops in with your student. Your class rep will have a collection box available in the classroom.
