Clip box tops and earn cash for your school!
All Catoosa elementary schools collect General Mills Box Tops for Education. Each box top makes ten cents for our school. This really adds up...Schools have earned over $400 million through the Box Tops for Education® program since 1996, helping them buy much-needed supplies, fund school programs and more. Please put them in a baggie and send to school with your child. Let's start earning money for your school today!
