Save those Box Tops!!
​Remember to collect during the Summer!

Box Tops is an easy way to earn money for our school! Just by purchasing Box Tops products, clipping the coupons and sending them into school, we earn cash that can be used to buy anything we need.  Thank you for supporting Silver Spur!

As the year comes to an end, I want to thank you all for your time, dedication and support. Silver Spur would not be the place it is without all of us sharing the same goal - to make it the best school and community for our children. It has been an honor to lead the PTA this year and I look forward to supporting our incoming President, Courtney Klink. 
Have a wonderful summer and see you in August!
