As one of their fund raisers, Jason Lee collects Box Tops for Education. Those little Box Tops add up. Over the years Jason Lee has collected over $18,000 in Box Tops. Jason Lee families do a great job of turning in Box Tops. I found one yesterday on a Jet Dry bottle from Costco. And this little guy does not expire until 2020!
Box Tops have expiration dates. No use in telling your great aunt that though or she might stop collecting them for you all together. That font size is way too small for her to read anyway. Once you clip and collect all those tiny coupons, take a peek at the expiration date at the bottom. Sort through your box tops before you send them into school. If the Box Tops are expired, pitch them! Checking the expiration date is a great job for your Jason Lee student’s young eyes. Make sure they check the expiration date before securing the Box Tops to the collection sheet or putting them in an envelope. We find taping the Box Tops to the sheet ensures they will not fall off in transit.
Box Tops do not need to be trimmed perfectly, but they do need to keep the integrity of the information on the Box Tops. If Box Tops 4 Education is unable to read the acronym (see the FIN in the top left of the dark folder) or expiration date (located in the bottom center), they will not accept the Tops. They do not accept expired Tops either.
For every 25 Box Tops a Jason Lee student turns in that are not expired and are clearly labeled with their full name, teacher, and grade they will receive a prize.
Thank you for collecting Box Tops for Jason Lee Elementary and contributing to a successful fund raiser.
