Now that summer is over where I live and the kids are back in the classroom, I’m back in full class mom mode. I’m got our morning routine down and I’ve pretty much mastered the school day schedule. But for me, back-to-school is about more than simply making sure my kids have all their books and a lunch they will love. You see, I’ve always liked being involved in my kids’ schools. I’ve been class mom a few times and when I’m not, I’ve made sure I’m still in the classroom whenever possible giving back in whatever way possible. While sometimes this means going in and getting my hands dirty as I help with crafts or setting up for parties, one of the easiest (and most rewarding ways) that I’ve found to give back is through collecting Box Tops for Education to give back to the schools. Now, it’s easier than ever to participate in the Box Tops for Education program because of the new app that allows me to scan my Box Tops quickly and easily. Read on to find out more and learn how you can earn 50 Bonus Box Tops for your child’s school.
Before we get to all the fun of finding out how to “clip” those Box Tops (and earn 50 Bonus Box Tops) without ever picking up a pair of scissors, I want to share with you a little bit more about the Box Tops program. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, it’s a fabulous way to give back to schools without really having to do anything extra on your part. All you have to do is look for the partcipating products that are Box Tops eligible as you do your back-to-school shopping and add them to your cart. Then, you can designate the Box Tops from those products to the school of your choice (more on that later) and the school will earn ten cents for each Box Top collected! Awesome, right? I know that personally at my youngest son’s school this program is huge and has helped the school get supplies that they need. In fact, each year our classrooms have a competition to see which grade can collect the most Box Tops and earn the most for the school. Truthfully, it gets a little competitive and it’s a lot of fun with the winning class receiving an ice cream party to celebrate at the end of the year. The real winner though is the school because those Box Tops worth ten cents each can add up quickly and help provide supplies that helps keep our school running smoothly. In my mind, it’s a perfect way for EVERY parent to contribute to their child’s school because, really, you don’t have to do anything extra to ensure that your school is earning. You simply have to buy the items you already love that feature the Box Tops for Education logo.
So, now that you know why you should be collecting Box Tops, I want to share something really awesome with you! You all know that I am a digital gal and love my apps. I always have my phone on me and just adore the simplicity that comes with using it. Now, there is a Box Tops app so that collecting my Box Tops and donating them to the school of my choice is as easy as buy, scan and earn! Even better, through September 10th, there is an awesome way for me (and you) to earn 50 Bonus Box Tops, just in time for all the back-to-school fun.
