Make sure if you have any Box tops or Labels for Education, you submit those to the school so we can earn points. Please take an extra minute and clip those off the packaging and send them into school. We greatly apreciate it. We have recently used our points to purchase math and science manipulatives in the classrooms. Your efforts make a difference.
