BOX TOPS

Box Tops for Education

Dear Parents and Students,

     We will continue to collect BOX TOPS here at Murphy School.  This extra money helps fund various programs for our school, supplies and any “extras” for classrooms.  Last year we earned $1,304.30!!!  That has been our highest earnings so far!  Please send your BOX TOPS with your child to school whenever you collect them.  You may use the attached sheet to collect your box tops.  Please ask your child’s teacher if you need more sheets!  Thanks for your support!

Sincerely,

The Box Tops Coordinator- Mrs. Williams 

FUN, NOT FOOD

We are starting something new this year with birthdays!  Instead of bringing cupcakes, cakes, icecream, or anything else food related we will ask you to bring in non food items!  Examples of non food items would be pencils, bookmarks, coloring books, anything that is not food related! 

Please see the attached flyer!
