Box Tops for Education Program Change- We have collected Box Tops for several years at our elementary schools.  We earn 10 cents for every Box Top we receive. We will still continue to collect the clipped Box Tops until it is fazed out.  However, there is a Box Top app that you scan your receipt to get our school the credit for the Box Tops on that particular shopping trip.  No more clipping!
