Box Tops for Education Program Metcalf PTO volunteers coordinate the General Mills Box Tops for Education program at Metcalf. There are many ways your family can participate in this program. 1. Clip - Clip Box Tops from hundreds of participating General Mills products. Attached is a list of products. Sign up for at http://www.boxtops4education.com/ to see when products are added to the list. Box Tops are worth 10¢ each when our school redeems them from General Mills. Your child can deposit their box tops in the bin in their classroom anytime from the start of school until February 20, 2009. Parent volunteers collect and count the box tops about once a month. Check the Box Tops for Education posters in the hallway near the small gym to see how we’re doing! When clipping your box tops, please keep in mind that General Mills Box Tops for Education program will not accept: expired Box Tops, Box Tops missing the expiration date, Betty Crocker® points, and labels or coupons from other school fundraising programs. 2. Shop at Local Grocery Stores Sometimes Kroger, Jewel, Cub and Meijer have sponsored programs that allow you to earn bonus box tops when you buy participating Box Tops for Education products during a certain promotional period. You have to watch grocery store ads to find out about these promotions! Also, watch for Flyers on these events from PTO!! 3.
