Box tops collected
The Boyce Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization is collecting labels and box tops as a year-round project.

Labels for Education gives points for what is submitted and items can be selected from a catalog to support the school. In past years, items have been ordered for special education classrooms and physical education equipment.

For Big G (General Mills) box tops, the school receives a check. Each box top is worth 10 cents.

Money raised is used for school activities such as field trips, special competitions and special lunches.
