Box Tops: Did you know collecting Box Tops is a quick and easy way to support The Covenant School? They can be found on hundreds of grocery and household items, many of which you may already have in your home, and if returned to Box Tops for Education, they result in free cash for our school! We are starting our Spring Collection Drive, which will end on February 26. Collection sheets will be going home with students this week. Please help your child clip and tape Box Tops to the sheets with the class name at the top. Box tops are also acceptable when placed in a Ziploc bag with the class name written with a sharpie pen. Please check expiration dates on the Box Tops. The top three classes that bring in the most Box Tops will win a Uniform Pass Day for each student in that class. An ongoing tally board will be kept in the school foyer near the Circle Desk along with additional collection sheets. Children may give their collection sheets or baggie of Box Tops to their teacher or place in the box near the Circle Desk. Thank you!
