Box Tops For Education
Here is a reminder that you can earn money for our school just by having the Box Tops app and scanning your grocery store receipts. Please see the following from parent volunteer Audra Valdez, who has helped coordinate the Box Tops effort in our school:
****Our family scans our receipt now as part of the "unloading" the groceries and then we put the receipt in the recycle bin. So fast and convenient. Because we buy mostly fresh food at our house, there are not a lot of items that earn points on, but even once a month we earn 10 cents here and there (we even scan our convenience store stops when we are traveling). We have encouraged the grandparents and some of our friends without kids to get the app on their phone to earn money for Wasatch Charter School as well. It really is a great way to earn some extra funds for our school even if it is not as satisfying as clipping cardboard coupons and sending them to the school! I hope every family will jump on board the Box Tops App train and continue earning for our school throughout the whole year (yes, even during the summer!!).
