Box Tops For Education – February Drive Due Tuesday, February 26th

Posted Feb 3, 2019 | Category: Box tops For education, Fundraisers


Dear Ames students, family and friends,

The spring submission is right around the corner and we are only 216$ away from our goal of $1,000! Can we reach our goal this month? With our Ames spirit and Dolphin pride we can! The class who collects the most Box Tops by February 26th will not only redeem the trophy but will also have the opportunity to vote during a pizza party on which play equipment to purchase with the funds raised. So let’s amp up our school spirit and dolphin pride! The heat is on! Remember to check the expiration dates on your Box Tops! If they’re expired, don’t send them to school as they do not count towards the class tally and will not be accepted. Please submit forms by February 26th complete with teachers name and if in kindergarten state AM or PM. For updates and class winners please follow https://m.facebook.com/BTFAmesElementarySchool.

Thank you
