It's Hip To Clip!
Box Tops for Education (BTFE) is a national school earnings program that has been around since 1996. Since then, schools around the country have earned over half a billion dollars to support and enhance education programs at their schools.
Here at Bear Creek, we ask students to bring in Box Tops for Education labels from products their parents usually buy. (If you check your pantry right now, you're sure to spot more than a few!) Box Tops are found on hundreds of products and each clipped box top we collect is worth $.10 to our school.With the proceeds we get from BTFE, we will be able to supplement the Field Trips budget.
To reward our students for diligently clipping, each homeroom class that brings in 500 box tops will receive a special treat.
But wait, there's more!
You can also help Bear Creek earn eBOXTOPS® by doing your usual online shopping through the BTFE Marketplace.
