Box Tops

Box Tops is an easy way to earn cash for our school!  We are still collecting clipped Box Tops.  These are being phased out and replaced by the digital version, but we can still submit them for cash.  Each Box Top is $.10 cash.  Our next deadline to submit clipped Box Tops is coming up.  Please send any unexpired clipped labels to school by October 25th.

Please download the Box Tops app. It’s an easy way to make a difference. All you have to do is buy Box Tops participating products (like Cheerios!) and scan your grocery receipt.  Twice a year, our school receives a check to help pay for whatever we need – equipment, supplies or experiences the kids love!  Download the Box Tops for Education app here or click on this link and help support our school.  Have friends and family download the app also and select Nerge as their supporting school.  You can contribute if you shop online by emailing your digital receipt to [email protected].  It’s easier than ever!
