What’s a box top? A box top is a small pink and white paper square found on the outside of many grocery items. They come in different sizes. Each box top is worth 10 cents! All the money we earn through Box Tops for Education goes directly back to the school for Academic, Fine Arts, and Athletic enhancements that tuition does not cover. There will be certain collection days through out the year, but you can always send your box tops in with your grandchild at any time. 

Don’t forget these three easy steps:
1) Collect Box Tops by cutting them off of packaging from your pantry.
2) Check expiration dates printed on the box top.
3) Send them to school with your grandchild. Don't forget to include your students’ your name on the envelope or ziploc bag.


Please contact us if you have any questions at jotts@ums-wright.org or 251-470-9039. We will send an E-News in January 2019 to share details about second semester events and news.

We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
