Box Tops for Education

When was the last time your family ate General Mills cereal, or products from Pillsbury™, Old El Paso™ and Green Giant™? And don’t forget Ziploc®, Hefty®, Kleenex® and Scott® products, too!  There’s money attached to those boxes!  And your PTA needs it!!  Those 10-cent box tops could add up to thousands of dollars for our school.  Just think, if every child in the school brought 20 box tops a month to school, that would total over $2,000 per month. All it takes is a snip with the scissors.

Visit for more information.

The PTA will have 2 contests during the school year — your child’s classroom could win extra recess or another fun reward!

Box Tops can be placed in the collection bin in the main lobby of the school, and remember to…

  • TRIM the box tops
  • Place all Box Tops in a small baggie before putting them in the bin
  • Expiration dates must be clearly visible on the Box Top (not damaged or cut off)
  • Expired Box Tops cannot be submitted for credit (expiration date is indicated on box top)

Labels for Education

As of August 1, 2016, only UPCs with the Labels for Education logo will be accepted and redeemed for points into PTE’s bank account. Campbell’s has begun the process of removing the logo and expect there will be a limited number of products that contain these labels in stores through August 1, 2017. Once all Labels for Education logos have been removed from the products, UPCs will no longer be accepted. The banked points we have accumulated will not be affected.

To learn more about the Labels for Education program, please contact TBD
