Box Tops for Education

If every student collects just 10 Box Tops then Atkinson receives over $500! Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs. Any time you purchase participating products (General Mills, Betty Crocker, Yoplait, Green Giant, Kleenex, Ziplock and Hefty to name some), clip the pink Box Tops off the packaging and turn them into the office. Attach them to a Box Top Buck to be eligible for prizes. Every Box Top counts!

For a complete list of participating products, visit http://www.boxtops4education.com.  Thanks for your help!

Dear Atkinson Families,
I am absolutely elated to be the principal of such an amazing school!
