Abby’s Blog: Kids Helping the Earth: Box Tops

My school collects Box Tops for Education. You’ve seen them, they toplots of cereal and granola bar boxes, you probably recycle them withe the rest of your cardboard but do you know they are worth ten cents for every one you send to your local school? That money get used for things like supplies for art, books and music. Our school has a competition and the classroom who raises the most money with boxtops gets a pizza party at the end of the year.

There’s five weeks left of school and our class is doing ok (pretty good for kindergarteners if you ask me). But our school has raised thousands of dollars every year with the program. So before you recycle, clip that ten cents and give it to your local kindergartner. The book you buy could teach someone to read.
