About the program:
The PTA runs the Box Tops program for both the ECLC & BES. Thanks to your hard work and lots of clipping last year, you helped us to earn $1781.10 for our schools!
Our goal for 2019-2020 is $2,000.00 and we know we can meet that goal with your help! Click here to be directed to the Box Tops for Education website to learn more about the national program!
Barrington PTA Box Tops FAQ’s:
Box tops has a new app for Apple and Android devices! Skip the scissors and use the mobile app instead! It’s the easiest way to earn for your school: just use the Box Tops mobile app to scan your store receipt. It automatically finds participating products and instantly adds Box Tops to your school’s earnings online. No clipping required!
What about all those physical box tops that I’ve collected and/or still see on packages? Send them in!! Traditional Box Tops clips are being phased out of production, but may continue to be found on many products throughout the store. You can still clip and send them to school as long as the expiration date on the bottom of the box top is still valid!
How does the PTA collect the box tops? You are welcome to send clipped box tops anytime throughout the year! You can drop them off at the school directly or send them in your child’s school/home folder in a bag or envelope. (Just don’t forget to label it with the classroom name) Many families choose to hold on to their stash of box tops until our “Box Tops Drives” where classrooms compete to collect the most box tops so they can win prizes! We will send plenty of information about the drives when the time comes. We even provide Ziploc bags to collect those clippings in! Also, make sure you follow our Facebook and Instagram accounts for information about the drives.
What does the PTA do with the earnings? Every dime goes back right back to the students. Whether it be in the form of grants, like the BES Learning Garden Grant, or in support of educational curriculum, like the Kindergarten Readiness Kits. You can rest easy that all that hard work goes to improve our educational community and your student’s experience.

What about qualifying items I buy online? Box Tops is working on a way to fix this oversight and unfortunately we don’t know what the answer will be. As soon as we find out we’ll update our social media pages, this website, and send information home with students.
How much of a difference does .10 cents really make? This is one amazing program! Every box top brought in earns the school 10 cents! While that may seem small, check out the Earnings Potential:
