BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION NEWS: Download the BoxTops App Here

No problem! Make sure you have a Box Tops account. Then, forward your email receipt to receipts@boxtops4education.com using the same email that's associated with your BTFE account!  


Download the Box Tops App, Scan reciepts and Earn Free Money for our school! You can also tag your reciepts in the app with your teacher's name to count towards your child's classroom! (See the "Give Credit" video below).The classroom with the most boxtops will get a sno-cone party at the end of the year! 

*NOTE: We can still accept/submit clipped box tops, as long as they are still in date. Feel free to keep clipping any boxtops you see as well. (It's a totally valid double-credit if you both clip  & scan your reciept on the app! Win - Win!! Your child can turn them into their classroom after we are back on-site.)
