Make This Week the Week You Turn in Your BoxTops!

Lafayette’s BoxTop coordinator only has a few weeks left to sort, count, bag, package and send in Lafayette’s BoxTops before the November 3rd deadline. Each boxtop is worth 10 cents. This money goes directly to Lafayette, so go home and start clipping the tops from your favorite cereal, soup, or snack food and bring them to the box on the table by the main office! Visit the Lafayette PTA’s BoxTop page to get more information.
