Collect Box Tops
Remember to save your Box Tops!! Every box top that Summitt collects is money for our great school.  You can find box tops on items you buy at the grocery store every day: General Mills cereals, Ziploc bags, etc etc. Bring your box tops in ziploc bags of 50 box tops to the main office, labeled with your child’s name and classroom teacher. We made $1200 for Summitt last year, let’s see if we can break that record this year!  If you have questions about box tops collecting, please contact Sarah Allen, box tops coordinator, at sarahdeeallen@gmail.com. Happy clipping!!
