Box Tops for Education

Box Tops and Labels for Education are "free" money and a way the kids can get involved in helping out the school. Thank you for taking the time to help them. It really makes a difference!

Turn in Box Tops expiring 3/1/20

Please turn in any Box Tops for Education expiring 3/1/20 ASAP to your classroom collection box so TPES can redeem them in time!

Mr. Ramirez’s class wins 2nd contest!

Congratulations to Mr. Ramirez’s class for winning the Golden Ticket in the 2nd contest of this school year! Counts for all classes are posted to the right and on the lunch area windows.


SCAN YOUR RECEIPTS IN THE APP when you buy participating products with traditional Box Tops clips to DOUBLE OUR EARNINGS (when you also turn in the clips), and with the new digital Box Tops labels. When scanning your receipts, tap the "CREDIT" BUTTON and enter your TEACHER'S LAST NAME. All of these will count for your class in the 2nd contest of this school year, ending in February.

Earn money for TPES and help your class win an in-class reward with the Golden Ticket in the three contests each school year (ending in late October, February, and May)!

The Golden Ticket is a prize that is decided by the teacher and their class and could consist of extra recess, free time, computer time, etc.

Check back here and in the lunch area windows for updates on class standings.

Box Tops Going Digital: Download the Box Tops App and Scan Your Receipt to Earn with Digital Box Tops, and DOUBLE Earnings with Traditional Clips

Starting in summer 2019, you'll begin to see some participating brands change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new digital Box Tops label.

Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. The Box Tops for Education team has built a new-and-improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app that you can download now.

The new app features state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school's earnings online.

Some brands have already updated their packaging. If you see the new Box Tops label on packages, you can use the Box Tops App to earn Box Tops for that product. Simply download the app, and sign up, setting TPES as your school, and scan your receipt WITHIN 14 DAYS to earn.

If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, be sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, you can “double dip” now during this packaging transition by clipping the traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt containing participating products!

To count towards your class in the TPES contests, tap the "Credit" button at the bottom of the screen when scanning your receipt, and then enter your teacher's last name.
