Box Tops for Myrtle H. Stevens Elementary School

January 21, 2013 by  

In Rocky Hill, CT, Myrtle H. Stevens Elementary needs contributions and efforts from the local community to help it reach its goal: becoming the winning school in Connecticut.

While a school can be a winner in many ways (Stevens is rated very well by parents in CT), the students of this elementary school are striving to become the number one school in Box Top collections this year.

The students of Stevens Elementary have achieved third place in a competition including 1,080 different schools – an inspirational accomplishment even now. However, the students remain roughly 100 box tops away from second place and 2,000 away from reaching their goal of first place. Currently, the school has collected box tops equivalent to $2,600.

Box Tops for Education is a General Mills program that has earned over $475m for schools around the US since 1996 and earned roughly $74m for schools just last year. Box tops can be found in everyday products listed on the Box Tops for Education website, so it is easy to make a contribution to local schools without making extra purchases. Progress for each school is tracked online through the Box Tops website, and the winner is calculated at the end of each school year.

Myrtle H. Stevens Elementary needs community members to send their box tops either to the school itself, or other drop-off points at Cora Belden Library,West Side Marketplace, and Rocky Hill Town Hall.

Encouraging community members to participate is crucial to the success of Stevens’ mission. PTO members might consider using methods like banner printing, flyer printing, and poster printing to encourage participation and enthusiasm in residents of Rocky Hill.
