Box Tops for Education

Now that I am a teacher and my children are preparing to enter into their school years, I want to do all I can to help today's struggling schools in any way that I can. Thanks to General Mills, you can clip box tops and give them to your child's school or any school in your area. Each Box Top is worth $.10. It may not seem like much, but you will be surprised how quickly they will add up. Now, there is another great way to give you choice school MORE without clipping anything. If you visit the Box Tops for Education web site you will find a "Marketplace" tab.

Shopping at Box Tops Marketplace is easy. Here are some simple steps to help you get started:

1) Go to and click Sign up Now. Sign up for free and choose a school to support.
2) Click on the Marketplace tab and start shopping online at more than 70 stores.
3) Your school will receive a donation of up to 8% from your qualifying purchase, up to $20,000 each year.

Do your school shopping on-line. Some other great information for you...

Did You Know?
Your school can earn up to $60,000 every year by participating in all three of the Box Tops for Education programs. You can earn cash for your school every time you 1) shop online at the Box Tops Marketplace, 2) shop for groceries and clip box tops or 3) order books online through the Box Tops Reading Room – at no extra cost to you.

Don't think you have to do all this yourself. Tell Grandma and Grandpa or Aunts and Uncles in other states to register for your child's school as well. Tell you neighbors, friends, coworkers and social groups that you are helping the schools. People are naturally "helpers" and taking the extra 5 seconds to clip off those box tops that come on everyone's GM products can be a huge help for your school. Also, the Marketplace has stores that EVERYONE shops at. Come Christmas time, not only will you be getting gifts, but a % will go to the schools. That's a couple of reason's to feel good! One person can make a difference, but lots of people can make a bigger difference.

  1. Wooo! Big changes is right! You got a job! I'm excited for you, and excited to hear how it goes being back in the classroom. Way to go, Steph!

    And, as far as the haircut. I don't have a vote. I'm partial to the shorter haircuts.....ON ME! But, I'd give anything to be able to throw my hair up in a pony once in awhile. Post a pic, would ya, when you get it done.
