EASY WAYS TO SUPPORT MATER CHRISTI PTO!

  • COLLECT “BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION!”

Ever seen the small pink “Box Tops for Education” labels on your Ziplock, Kleenex, or cereal boxes? They are on lots of products including some soups and pastas too. They are worth 10 cents each to the school! Please clip them and send them into school with your grandchild!

The money earned helps the PTO to fund Teacher Grants (teacher requests for extra classroom supplies or resources to enrich the students’ learning) and to sponsor community-building PTO events among other things.  Just clip the Box Tops, and send them into school! Thanks! 😊

Everything else is the same!  It’s the same products, same prices, same service, same process!
