Box Tops

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to another great year at Elysian School! My name is Mrs. Tronstad and I’m the coordinator for Box Tops for Education. This year, our goal is to raise $1000.00 to purchase BOOKS for the school library.

Box Tops offers three easy ways to earn cash for our school through everyday activities such as buying groceries, shopping online and purchasing books.

Clip — Clip Box Top coupons from hundreds of participating products and send them to school. Box Tops coupons are worth 10¢ each when our school redeems them from Box Tops for Education.

Shop — Shop at your favorite online stores through the Box Tops MarketplaceSM (btfe.com/marketplace). Up to 8% of each qualifying purchase is automatically donated to our school. There is no additional cost to your purchase and many exclusive deals and discounts can be found!

Buy books — Purchase books online at Barnes & Noble through the Box Tops Reading RoomSM. Our school will receive 6% of your new book purchases and 3% of all other online purchases.

One of the easiest ways you can help is to sign up to support our school at btfe.com. You will learn about new and easy ways to help our school earn the extra cash it needs.

Plus, you can sign up for email newsletters to receive new product updates, and Box Tops members-only deals and discounts at Box Tops MarketplaceSM retail stores.

To learn more, visit btfe.com—and thanks for choosing to make a difference for our school with Box Tops!

Book Fair

Thank you to all who made our book fair a success! We sold $1964.62 worth of books and of that amount, $1181.20 is our profit to buy new books for the library!!

Rally for Recess

Check out the RallyForRecess.com website for ways to help our school win $30,000 for our playground! We are currently in first place in our league and want to keep up the lead.
