We are collecting Box Tops to help raise funds for Tafoya students.  Please help us by following these simple steps:

  1. Neatly cut your Box Tops around the dotted lines, making sure you preserve the expiration date and acronym code. Please do not send expired Box Tops as those are NOT valid.
  2. Bundle your Box Tops in groups of 50.  Sets of 50 Box Tops can be put together by using a rubber band, an envelope, or a plastic baggie. If you do not have enough to make a set of 50, that is fine send what you have.  Remember, every little bit helps!
  3. Have your child turn in Box Tops to his/her teacher, or drop them off in the office for Mrs. Medina.

We will be sending in our first Box Top redemption the last week of October.  So, please gather your Box Tops quickly and help us raise funds for our first Box Top check. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer with this fundraiser please contact maria.medina@wjusd.org or at 666-4324.

Happy Box Top Collecting!
