Chinook Trail Elementary School participates in the Box Tops for Education program. This is a program that donates $.10 for every Box Top turned in by the school. Box Tops can be found on many products, including General Mills cereals, Kleenex, Ziploc, Nature Valley products, Yoplait, to name just a handful. Each month your child has the opportunity to turn in ten or more Box Tops and earn a prize. A “bonus Box Tops prize” is awarded every quarter to three randomly chosen students who have turned in at least ten Box Tops during that period. The more your child turns in, the better the chance he/she has for the bonus prize and the more money Chinook Trail will earn. In the 2017-2018 school year, CTE earned over $2,700 by turning in over 27,000 Box Tops!
The following are tips to make the Box Tops experience more successful:
-Keep the entire Box Top coupon in tact. Cutting inside the dotted lines or cutting off wording on the coupon will invalidate it. Please try to cut along the dotted lines!
-Be sure the expiration date has not passed. Expired Box Tops are not accepted.
-Box Tops are collected and sent into General Mills only TWO times during the school year (October and February). Please look at expiration dates accordingly.
-“Official Coupon” is always written on valid Box Tops. If you don’t see “Official Coupon” somewhere on the Box Top, then it is not an acceptable Box Top.
-Box Tops that your child turns in for a prize count only toward the month in which he/she turns them in.
