Box Tops for Education

It's time to send in all those Box Tops you've been collecting. Box Tops for Education is an easy and fun way for us to raise funds for our school.  You are encouraged to visit www.boxtops4education.com where you can sign up to be a supporter of our school and learn all about the hundreds of products from which you can clip Box Tops.  This is a great place to find recipes, coupons, and fun ideas for your family. The success of our program depends on getting the whole family involved.  This is a great way for grandparents, aunts and uncles, neighbors, and friends to lend their support to OCES.  Each Box Top is worth 10 cents and they really add up! Just send in your Box Tops in a sealed envelope or Ziploc bag labeled with your child’s first and last name as well as his or her homeroom teacher's name. All Box Tops are due on Friday, October 24th. The class at each grade that sends in the most Box Tops will win a doughnut or ice cream party.
