    SAVE your BOX TOPS!!!  Collect Box Tops from everyday foods and products you use in your home and help the Kindergarten Center!   Each month your child will bring home a collection tracking sheet to return to school.   The money we receive from the Box Tops for Education Program helps us provide some of the extras for classrooms. Last year we added several leveled texts to classroom libraries, which makes the Snail Lake literacy experience even stronger. Our goal for the year is to clip 22,000 box tops. In addition, the classrooms have a friendly competition against eachother to see who can collect the most!
