With the rising cost of gasoline, some classes were faced with the possibility of having to eliminate field trips due to the excessive cost of transportation. PTO believes that field trips are an important part of education and are fun for our kids, so we are making an effort to see that field trips can continue.
You can help in this endeavor by simply collecting Box Tops on many of the household products you normally use. Just send them to school with your elementary student, or drop them off in the elementary office. While these ten-cent coupons may seem inconsequential, last year PTO collected nearly $1400 from Box Tops to fund field trip transportation costs, so it’s easy to see that every little bit helps! Encourage your family and neighbors to collect them too!
You can also check out the website www.boxtops4education.com to find ways to easily make money for our school through purchases you normally make and through additional contests. You also get lots of great coupons!
