BoxTop Competition

The BRE Misfits would like to formally invite all BRE students to join them in the Fall BoxTop competition! Don't forget to have your student find the BoxTops in your pantry, fridge, and storage room. BoxTops will be collected from Thursday Sept. 20 - Thursday Oct. 4 3:30pm in all BRE classrooms.

To earn a 10% bonus for your class/team, please do the following things:
1. Check the BoxTop to be sure they aren't expired (VERY IMPORTANT!).
2. Cut the extra packaging off the BoxTop certificate.
3. Put in ziplock bag labeled with your teacher's name in quantities of 50 (or write the total if under 50).

For the top TWO classrooms/teams that collect the most BoxTops in the school: One of two spots in the 3rd Annual BoxTop Challenge Kick-Ball Game.
For the classroom in each grade level that collects the most BoxTops: A Pajama Day for their class AND an EXTRA RECESS!
Watch the completion board next to BRE's Staff Famous Face's Wall to see your classroom's progress over the next two weeks of the collection!
