Box Tops

Save Your Box Tops
Woodbury is collecting box tops to support our PTA! Each box top that you send in gives our school 10 cents or more. It doesn't sound like a lot, but these box tops can really add up and help with classroom supplies, L.E.A.D. Awards and other things that the PTA provides for our school! This is a year-long project so please send those box tops in whenever you can. The class that brings in the most box tops by the end of the year, will win a class party! Parents can send in collected Box Tops in an envelope or baggie through their teachers or drop them off in the front office (clearly labeled with teacher name). Clipping is made easy by finding Box Tops on these products. Feeling like going beyond just the simple box top and making your Box Top contribution go further? Check out these cool in-store offers from local retailers or download the Box Tops app to find ways to contribute more!
