Box Tops for Education

Leake Academy has the opportunity to participate in Box Tops for Education. This is a fundraising program sponsored by General Mills, Inc. to help schools across the United States. Our school can earn cash through this program. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents to our school. Please clip the Box Top coupons located on most General Mills products, put them in a plastic bag or envelope and send them back to school with your child who can then place the bag in our drop box located outside the elementary computer lab. A list of products that have Box Top coupons can be found at www.boxtopsforeducation.com.

 

Leake Academy operates under the control and direction of a Parent-Teacher Organization member-elected Board of Directors.
