Dear Parents and Guardians,

Once again, it is time for the "Beat the Blues Winter Contest.' This is a contest to raise money through the Box Tops for Education program. The contest will run from Monday January 23rd through Friday February 3rd (two weeks).

This is an easy way to raise money for our Home and School Association. For each Box Top collected we receive $0.10. Last year we raised over $2,500. Box Tops for Education seals can be found on many General Mills products.

Please clip the seals along the dotted lines and check the expiration date: General Mills will only accept them this way. It would be greatly appreciated if you have 50 or more seals, to place them in a small zip lock bag and write on the bag "50'. Please send them in with your child. Each classroom will be collecting as many Box Top seals as they can. This year there are 2 ways students can win!

1. At the end of the contest, the winning class K-3 and 4-6 who collected the most Box Tops will be awarded a pizza party.

2. If a classroom collects 500 or more seals, they will be awarded an extra 15 minutes of recess.

Thank you for helping to earn more cash for our school through Box Tops for Education. Please encourage your friends and family to help too! Remember the funds raised will continue to enrich our children's education.

If you have any questions, you can contact me at

Thank you for your help!
