Box Tops Collection

Barrington PTO is collecting Box Tops for Education.  Box Tops add up!   Our school earns 10 cents for every Box Top collected.

Please remember to cut out the Box Top from each package of your favorite Box Top products.   Send the Box Tops to school with your child or drop off in the Box Tops container located in the school office.   This is an easy way for every family to help raise money for our school.

Visit to see all brands that participate in this program.  You will be surprised how many things use on a daily basis that have Box Tops on them!
