PS10 is collecting Box Tops!

Looking for an easy way to raise money for PS 10? PS 10 is participating in the Box Tops program throughout the school year and all the proceeds go to the PTA’s general fund to support enrichment activities for the students. Box Tops labels can be found on many products including LARABAR, Annie’s, Ziploc, Papermate, various cereals, and many more. There are two ways to submit Box Tops to PS10:
1) Clip any Box Tops dated after 09/30/19 and put them in the collection box located outside the PTA office.
2) Download the Box Tops App! Click here to download the Box Tops App for easy submission without the clipping. Once you’ve downloaded the app and selected Public School 10 Brooklyn as your school, just scan your receipt right away whenever you buy products with the Box Tops label and our school will receive the proceeds.
