Moments to Remember

Box Tops

The PTA is collecting Box Tops again this year.  Last year we raised almost $1,700.  This year our goal is $2,000.  The money is used to help support programs in our school.  

Box Tops offers three easy ways to earn cash for our school.

  1. Clip - Clip Box Top coupons from hundreds of participating products and send them to school.  Box Top coupons are worth $0.10 each when our school redeems them from Box Tops for Education.
  2. Shop - Shop at your favorite online stores through the Box Top 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.
  3. Buy books - Purchase books online at Barnes & Noble through the Box Top Reading Room.  Burr 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  You will learn about new and easy ways to help our school earn extra cash.

Our classroom collection competition starts October 1st, with collections the last day of each month.  Bundles of 50 get extra points.
