•It’s time to cut and turn in those Box Tops. This is a quick and easy way to raise money for Iola elementary. Simply cut the Box Tops off the products you already have purchased, place in a Ziploc bag, and send them with your child to stuff their homeroom Box Top pig.
Each classroom will have a chance of winning a first-place pizza party or a second-place popsicle party. The deadline for Box Tops is Feb. 22. To assist our Box Top volunteers, please clip Box Top around the dotted lines before putting into to the Ziplock baggy.
