DAJA BOX TOPS PROGRAM IS ON THE MOVE!
DAJA Box Top Program is raising funds for us to get a new playground for our students. Each student is encouraged to bring in as many box tops as they can, and the class with the most box tops will receive a prize as well as bragging rites as Box Tops Class for a two-week time span.
Our Box Tops program is being coordinated by LaNiña Mompremier, one of our very active parent volunteers.
ABOUT BOX TOPS
General Mills wanted to create a program to help support education and benefit America’s schools – and so, Box Tops for Education™ was born. As part of the initial test program, Box Tops were only available on select Big G cereals, such as Cheerios™, Total™ and Lucky Charms™.
The program was such a huge success that it soon launched on other General Mills products and expanded across the nation. By 1998, more than 30,000 schools were clipping Box Tops and earning cash to buy the things they needed: books, computers, playground equipment and more.
Over the next four years, the Box Tops for Education™ program doubled to include brands such as Pillsbury™, Old El Paso™ and Green Giant™. By 2004, over 82,000 schools across the nation participated in Box Tops, earning more than $100 million.
In 2006, for the first time, non-food brands began to participate; now families could clip Box Tops from Ziploc®, Hefty®, Kleenex® and Scott® products, too. As the program expanded, school earnings increased. By 2010, schools across the nation had earned over $320 million.
Today, America’s schools have earned over $868 million, and you can find Box Tops on hundreds of products throughout the grocery store and online.

I just wanted to highlight a generous offer on the box tops app from Walmart. You can earn 50 bonus box tops by purchasing 5 box top items at Walmart. I had to try it first to make sure it wasn’t an error. I spent $6.51 on hamburger helper, pasta salad and taco shells (that I could donate or eat) and now the school has $5 in it’s account! ($6 including the other offers I completed). If everyone did this just once, we would surpass last year’s earnings, but it can be done up to 5 times before 9/10 or before it runs out. (I really want a playground).
