Box Tops Competition

Well Done on another great week in our competition, City School Community!  Week 4 resulted in 926 Box Tops Collected!  Now here is your math challenge:  With 6,168 total Box Tops collected so far, how many more would our school community need to collect to reach 8,000 Box Tops?  10,000?  Can we do it?!

Here is the competition breakdown by Learning Community:

Bright Beginnings still holds on to the lead, but several teams are using Box Tops collection sheets to keep their Box Tops on display in the classroom as motivation and several teams are making steady weekly progress while others' momentum is slowing down, so who knows what could happen during these last two weeks!   Keep clipping those Box Tops and good luck to all communities.  Everyone is doing a great job supporting this school-wide sustainable fundraising effort.
