Push for Box Tops in full swing

Our yearly slate is wiped clean, and we start over, collecting Box Tops to raise funds for Peabody Elementary, that is.

I want this school year to start off with a bang by working on Box Top collections now! Box Tops are like the pictures below on many of the products you already buy. Cut them out and drop them off and our school gets .10 per Box Top.  Last year we collected almost $1,000 worth of Box Tops for our school that were used to help fund the Eagle Bucks program, which is a reward program for great behavior of Peabody students.

This year the PTA hopes to offer grants to the teachers for projects they would like to see happen at our neighborhood school on top of the Eagle Bucks initiative. Feel free to collect your box tops and drop them off at the Cooper Young office at 2298 Young, Burke’s Book Store, and Stone Soup Café, both of which are on Cooper. Before you recycle that food container or box, just take a quick peek at the box and see if there is a Box Top!  Peabody Elementary and Peabody PTA will thank you!
