Box Tops for Education Campaign
The MSSC has renewed sponsorship of the Box Tops for Education campaign. These are the pink and white coupons found on cereal boxes, other General Mills products, paper products, household cleaning products, and many other products, including food storage products such as Ziplock Bags. The school gets ten cents for each one we submit. It may not sound like much, but it will add up if we take the time to cut them out and bring them in. A collection box will be on Mrs. Stamler’s desk.
We have collected $41.00 from everyone's Box Top coupons. Our goal is to double that by the next collection period in April.
Now there's an easier way to do it. Simply scan your store receipt within 14 days of purchase with the Box Tops mobile app to identify participating products and instantly add cash to our school's earnings online.
See how at BTFE.com. (Your phone should be set to automatically update the Box Tops app.)
All unexpired clipped Box Top coupons are still being accepted.
Hill Top Spirit Scarves!
Hill Top Spirit Scarves will keep you warm this winter while supporting Hill Top's 2020 Philadelphia Flower Show exhibit. The Hill Top Horticulture Club is selling school spirit scarves for $15. Quantities are limited! Please contact Mrs. Stretch for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
