Support our School! Clip Box Tops!

posted Aug 11, 2016, 10:36 AM by Linda Burns

Welcome back to school, parents!

This year, our school will be participating in the Box Tops for Education™ program. My name is Catalina Kirsch and I'm thrilled to be the Box Tops Coordinator for Kennett Middle School. Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs. Box Tops are each worth 10¢ and they quickly add up to real cash for our school. This school year, our school's earnings goal is $1,000.00. Let's top last year's earnings of $840! Well done, everyone!

To help our school, just look for pink Box Tops on products, clip them, bundle them in sets of 50,and send them to school in a ziploc bag labeled with your student's name and grade. Funds directly benefit your student's 8th grade trip fee, whether for this year or next. For more information on the Box Tops for Education program, including a list of participating products and our school's progress, visit and look up Kennett Middle School. Be sure to become a member to receive exclusive coupons and recipes and learn about extra ways for our school to earn.

Fall Sports Parents' meeting is Aug 24th. Bring your box tops tops to the collection bin in the school lobby.  Send them in on the first day of school. Look out for Sep 1 expiration dates!  I hope you're excited for everything we can do this year with Box Tops! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at I'm here to make our school's Box Tops for Education program a huge success this year.

Thanks for your help! Catalina Kirsch
