February Box Tops Collecting Competition Results in the Roosevelt Island School (P.S./I.S. 217)

Congratulations to the students that brought in the winning number of Box Tops in their group for the "Countdown to Vancouver" competition at the Roosevelt Island School (P.S./I.S. 217)! K003 had 2 medalists in Group 1: Lilli won a Gold medal and Sophia - Bronze. The students will be given their medals/awards at the March Student of the Month Assembly on Monday, March 22nd (details will be sent home next week).

A message from the PTA:

"We had a wonderful results with February's Box Tops Competition for Pre-K - 5th grades of the Roosevelt Island School (P.S./I.S. 217)! Thank you for sending in your Box Tops! The total number of Box Tops earned for February was 1,025! At 10 cents for each Box Tops we earned $102.50! This is great considering it was our first month focusing on the new competition and of raising awareness of what the Box Tops program is. With continued effort each month we will see better results - and we will reach our goal of 2,000 Box Tops at the end of this school year, and then set higher goals each year to raise funds for teachers & classes at 217!

A Box Tops Bulletin Board will be put up by Friday, stop by the Main Lobby to see:
1) The progress of all the classes at the end of each month. How many Box Tops did they earn?
2) View a list of products where you can find Box Tops. Know what to look for when you are shopping, looking through your house for Box Tops and asking friends/family and neighbors to help!
3) See the packaging from the products which carry the Box Tops you want to clip!
4) Many more fun ideas to be a successful Box Top Collecting student, family & school!

Each month we will have a different incentive to help students work toward our Box Top Goal.  We are now kicking-off March's Competition, and as this is our Teacher Appreciation Month, the student body of PS/IS 217 gets to "Show Your Teacher You Care!"  The class in each Group which brings in the most Box Tops, will help their teacher earn a $100 Gift Credit to be used through Scholastic Books!  Teachers will be able to use the money to purchase books and other school supplies for their classroom.  Collection sheets are available from teachers or in the Main Lobby.  All Box Tops must be turned in by Friday, March 26th.

Thank you for being a Box Top Collecting Student & Family! Good luck in March!
Summer L.
Box Top Coordinator & PTA"
