Box Tops Blast Off!

September 16, 2011


This week has been quite an exciting one for Merrydale Elementary. The corps at Merrydale has been working hard all week to prepare the school for the addition of the Box Tops for Education program. Since the corps first arrived, Box Tops has been the main priority in raising extra funding for the school.

The Merrydale corps spent this week desiging and decorating Ziplock plastic containers (donated by our Program Manager Carolyn Armgardt’s parents) to be distributed to each classroom in the school. Today, corps members visited each classroom to introduce the program to the students. Letters were also sent home to parents containing information regarding Box Tops for Education and how they can get involved.

The students seemed to be very excited about the idea, and many of them recognized the Box Tops coupon during the presentations. The Merrydale corps recognized their students love for competition and established an incentive for bringing in Box Top coupons: the class with the most Box Tops by the end of October gets a class party with the City Year Corps Members!

We are so excited to get this rolled out, and we can’t wait to see it flourish at Merrydale! Geaux Jaguars!


In Service,

Jordan C.
