• Dear Families of James Monroe Elementary,


    Box Tops is all about the difference ONE can make!


    Box Tops are little coupons found on everyday items such as Ziploc bags, Betty Crocker frosting, Pillsbury rolls, and General Mills cereal.  Each one of these coupons is worth ten cents; which really adds up! You and your child will be amazed how quickly those little coupons turn into dollars to help purchase books, materials and equipment for our school!


    Start saving them in a Ziploc bag; bags can be kept on the refrigerator or in a kitchen drawer.   Here are a couple Box Tops collection tips:


    Check Expiration Dates – Keep an eye on the date in the lower right corner.  Be sure that when cutting out Box Tops the date is visible.


    No Staples, Please – When attaching Box Tops to collect sheets, use glue or tape.  Staples are not allowed in our submissions and must be removed by James Monroe volunteers before we can collect our cash…ouch! 


    Get Others Involved – Increase your collection by asking grandparents, relatives, childless friends, and co-workers to clip and collect Box Tops for James Monroe!


    Submit Often – Box Tops for Education will send James Monroe a check twice a year.  Collect year round and make sure to turn in what you have by the October and February deadlines to ensure we collect as much money as possible during those periods.
