News from Box Tops for Education
Hey City School! Our last collection competition went so well we decided to set an end-of-the-year school-wide goal.Our goal is 8,000 Box Tops by the last week of school. Can we do it?!?! We hope you've still been clipping and collecting so we can reach our goal.
This will be another opportunity for friendly competition among learning communities. Dynamic Design will keep track of total collections from each learning community. More details coming soon!
Friday Activity- have the lights turned on low in your classroom, when the students are not expecting it, turn them on bright, and see the reaction you get.
