Money For Nothing

October 12th, 2015 · Uncategorized

Congratulations to Ms. Catalano’s kindergarten class for winning the September Box Tops competition. The students in her class brought in 278 Box Tops, Labels for Education and Tyson A+ labels during September and they get to keep the Box Tops trophy this month. Last month we received Money for Nothing entries from 18 of the 24 classes at the school. What a great way to start out the year. Keep up the great work!
Right now Labels for Education has a bonus sheet available. This sheet will earn the school (and your child’s class) 50 bonus points for a submission of just 3 Campbell’s and 2 Pepperidge Farm labels. Please visit to download the bonus sheet and make sure to return it to school by October 21st.
Thank you to all of the parents who have signed up for Shoparoo! We had several new families submit receipts last month and we’d like to add even more in October. For more information visit or download the Shoparoo app from the App Store or Google Play. Please use referral code glept513and Shongum PTO will earn extra donations for your first qualifying receipt.
