The popular program gets an upgrade for the new school year.
Plymouth Elementary PTO participates in Box Tops for Education. While we formerly hosted collection drives a few times throughout the school year, this year brings a major change: the new Box Tops for Education app does much of the collecting for us!
The first thing to know is that the little pink tags we normally cut out and send to school are being phased out. But don’t stop saving any you may have! We will do a final collection this fall before they expire.
Next, you can download the new Box Tops For Education app on your phone from the App Store or Google Play. Once you download the app for the first time, be sure to select Plymouth Elementary School in Midland, Michigan as the school where you wish to designate Box Top earnings. Each time you make a purchase at the store, scan your receipt with the app. It works by looking for eligible items and automatically tallying the Box Tops. Easy! You can also enter to win bonus Box Tops through periodic drawings through the app, so plan to spend a little time exploring, too.
Whether or not you submit receipts through the app or turn in the traditional Box Tops while they’re still around, each one still earns $0.10 for our school, which we use to fund special events and support student learning. Check out the list below for participating products!
