​Save those Box Tops!!
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.  Send them to school in a ziplock bag labeled with student's name.   Keep clipping and collecting!  Thank you for supporting Silver Spur!
