BOX TOPS
Please remember to keep keep clipping those Box Tops! Our spring submission is coming up soon! You can either send them in with your student or drop them in the collection box in the school's front hallway.  In the 2015-2016 school year we earned $1340!!!!  Thank you for all the support!

You can also turn in Campbell's labels

My Coke Rewards Program

Two big changes have occurred in the My Coke Rewards Program

1) Our school will now receive a check for points donated to our school. In years past, the school could only use points to receive free merchandise (such as PE or art equipment). What this boils down to is FREE MONEY for our school! 3 codes (which is one bottle cap) = 5 cents for our school. This can add up very quickly so save those codes!!

2) MCR no longer allows a school representative to maintain a school account and enter codes from caps/12 packs. What this means is that each family needs to have an account with MCR, enter their points and then donate them to Baker-Butler. We will no longer collect caps or 12 pack codes since we cannot enter them for the school.

See FAQS for further information.

Thank you!

Shoparoo is school fundraising made easy: the free app turns pictures of your everyday shopping receipts into cash donations and sweepstakes entries for our school!  Yep, it's that simple. 

All you have to do is shop as you normally do, snap pictures of your receipts with the app, and voila Just shop, snap, earn!


Get started today:

1. Download the free Shoparoo app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store

2. Select our school from the list and start taking pictures of your receipts - shop anywhere, buy anything!

3. The first 20 supporters at our school will earn an extra $1 donation from Shoparoo for their first receipt!

4. Earn even more Roo Points, or cash donations, by inviting others to join using your personal referral code.

There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo - the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school. Schools with just 40 supporters are earning an average of $1,000 every year. That’s free, easy money that we could be fundraising too.
