"Box Tops for Education"

Please collect the Box Tops for Education and turn them into Mrs. Epley or Miss Alotto, the choir director or to the office. Each week a student name is drawn to win some candy for donating their box tops.  When you turn them in, be sure you print your first & last name on each one.  The box tops are then placed in a container, and one is drawn for the candy prize each week. The money earned will be used for purchasing needed items for students in the choir program.  Thank you for your help.
