  • KidStuff does not promote door-to-door sales by children.

Collect "Box Tops"

Check out all of the boxes you use (food, house items, etc.) for the Box Tops symbol. It is an easy way for our school to raise money on things you already purchase! We collected over $1,300 in box tops last year--which is a lot considering each one is worth 10 cents!

  • Please send them in with your kids before that date – the winning class gets a pretzel party! They do have expiration dates so it is best to send them in frequently!

  • There is also a free Box Top app that makes it super easy to collect more for our school just by selecting an offer, buying the item and submitting a picture of the receipt. Learn more about scanning coupons at https://www.boxtops4education.com/

  • And, finally, we’re collecting Coke codes from bottle caps and soda packs – those codes are worth at least 5 cents each. Just send them in along with your Box Tops.

  • Any questions, please contact Tara Koup at tarakoup@gmail.com

Amazon Smile

Parents-do you use Amazon? You can use Amazon's charitable giving program, Amazon Smile, to support our school. It's exactly the same as regular Amazon-your prime account works, same prices-but by using Amazon Smile our school gets a small percentage of eligible purchases. So if you're already spending $ there, it's a no brainier! Be sure to bookmark & go to www.smile.amazon.com to support our school!
