    WELCOME BACK to a new year for Box Tops for Education collecting! DID YOU KNOW?...Last year collecting Box Tops brought in over $3000!  

    OUT WITH THE OLD… When the Box Tops program began over 23 years ago, sending in clips was really the only way to run the program. Over the years, technology has advanced at a remarkable rate opening all kinds of new opportunities. BTFE had a decision to make.... to stay in the past or find better ways to grow the program and GOING DIGITAL was their solution! They made this change for many reasons, but primarily to modernize the program for the next generation of participants and they believe that this new structure will allow Box Tops to attract more brands to participate in helping schools earn even more.

    IN WITH THE NEW… Let’s ditch the scissors and pick up our phones to earn cash for our school. Just download the new & improved mobile app, register, select TAES, and then scan an eligible receipt containing Box Tops product. The app will automatically add Box Tops to our school’s earnings online AND you can track our school’s progress in real time.  Learn more at Box Tops for Education.

    Please note: Clippable Box Tops will remain on some product packaging during the program transition. All clippable Box Tops will be accepted until they expire and, better yet, most participating brands are awarding both the receipt scan earnings and traditional clip earnings for a single product purchase during this time of transition. Just make sure to clip the Box Tops AND scan your receipt! You MUST scan your receipt within 14 days of purchase!

    CATCH THE WAVE WITH US! We’re excited to share that our school is now participating in the Coca-Cola Give program. This will open TAES to new funding opportunities to help improve learning environments for our students. The best part? Donations do not come out of your own pocket. When you purchase your favorite Coca-Cola beverage, save the rewards code found under the bottle CAP, cardboard FLAP, and plastic WRAP. The value of each code varies from 5¢ to 38¢, depending on the product purchased. Simply enter the product codes at https://us.coca-cola.com/give/schools/ OR send them to school with your child and PTO volunteers will enter the codes.

    Coca-Cola Give will Double the Donation to local schools at least three (3) times a year. TAES will save up as many codes as we can and utilize these double promotion weeks to bring in double our money!  The code from a 20 oz. bottle CAP or from 2-liter Coke product, they're worth a donation of 10¢ (which is equivalent to Box Tops), 12-pack cardboard FLAP code is worth 30¢, and codes from larger size WRAP packages amount to 60¢ or more.

    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  I'm here to make sure that these programs are a huge success this year.  The contests are going to be different this year. Our goal will be building wide for each marking period instead of different contests each marking period.  Stay tuned for more information! 

    Thanks for your help!
