BOX TOPS CONTEST! CLASSROOM PRIZES!
You can WIN fun new items for your classroom! Turn in Box Tops to your classroom collection box by Monday, February 19th, and the classroom with the most Box Tops collected will win a gift card for new indoor recess items.
You can make our counting easier by throwing out expired Box Tops or those missing expiration date, putting trimmed Box Tops in a small zip-top plastic bag, and writing your teacher’s name on the bag. We use those little bags to submit the Box Tops for money for our school.
REMEMBER, THE LAST DAY TO TURN IN IS MONDAY, FEBRUARY 19. Turn in those Box Tops early and often. Thank you, and may the odds be ever in your favor!

Thanks to all who submitted for the last Box Tops contest. Woodside will receive a check for $1362.60! Way to go!
Special thanks to all those who took the time to get rid of their expired Box Tops. This time there were more than 3,000 expired Box Tops we had to recycle before we could count the 14,000+ we could submit. By purging your submissions of the expired Box Tops, you make a monumental task a little bit easier. Thanks!
Keep collecting those Box Tops over the holidays, and watch for the next contest in 2018!
