Teacher's Pet: How to get ahead before school even starts!

August 8, 2016


Are your kids starting school soon? What if I told you there was a way you could help out their classroom, teacher, and school before they even head back to class? 

You can! There is a simple way that you can start raising money for your school to use on supplies and equipment, and it probably won't cost anything more than what you are already spending on groceries! 

It's no secret that schools today are severely underfunded. Better funding can make a world of difference in YOUR child's education. Box Tops for Education are little labels on select food items. Schools can redeem them for cash to spend on any additional needs the school may have. Think computers, playground equipment, or even just pencils and paper!


Right now at Walmart select packages of General Mills products have a special 5-for-1 offer which means you get your normal box top, plus 4 extra!! You can click HERE for the full list of participating products!

At our school we encourage families to collect their box tops and then fill in collection sheets that you can find at boxtops4education.com. The class that brings in the most box tops each month gets an ice cream party, but the REAL winner, is the whole school. We're able to purchase supplies, technology, and materials that we wouldn't otherwise be able to purchase. Every box top is worth 10 cents! 

It's super simple to participate! Simply purchase special boxes of General Mills products at Walmart that are marked with the 5-for-1 deal


Carefully clip out each one. Make sure you get the extra 4 on the back!


Glue them onto the collection sheet, or even just collect them in a baggie. 


On the first day of school, hand in your collection to your child's teacher. I guarantee he or she will be thrilled! If your school already has a Box Tops program, your donation will be a welcome addition. If your school doesn't, you may just inspire them to start one! 


When the money is going directly to our schools to be spent as they best see fit to fill in funding gaps, EVERYONE wins!!

Here's a handy pin!
