Barrington Student Council and PTO Team Up with Box Tops for Education

Clipping Box Tops from the products you already purchase is an easy way for you to help our school earn cash. Each Box Top is worth 10¢ and they quickly add up to real cash for our school. Last school year, we earned $776.00. Our earnings goal this school year is $1,000. All money earned goes back into Barrington.

Student Council will have monthly drawings and special activities/prizes/recognition. Every 10 Box Tops submitted will be eligible for Student Council incentives so submit as many Collection Sheets and/or baggies of Box Tops as you would like. The more Box Tops submitted the greater chance of winning and raising money for Barrington.
