We collect Box Tops for Education here at Slade so keep clipping those items! Box Tops are collected by each classroom teacher and used to help our PTA raise money. You can turn them in to your teacher in Ziploc baggies or envelopes. Please make sure your child’s name, grade, and teacher’s name is on the envelope. We will announce a new contest every month!
