Clip your Box Tops!

The Box Tops fundraiser for NSM successfully raised several hundred dollars for the school last year.  The next deadline to turn in your Box Tops by is October 25!  Please get out your scissors over Fall Break and check for unclipped Box Tops around the house.  They can be found on OKpackages of Ziploc bags, Cheerios cereal, and many other household products.  Box Tops can be dropped off in the front office.  Thank you so much for all your help!
