CHANGES TO BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Last year we raised $1,011 for the school from the Box Tops for Education program. There are some important changes to the Box Tops program this year. Over the summer, participating brands began to change their packaging from the original Box Tops clip to the new Box Top label.

Going forward, instead of clipping from packages, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. All you need to do to redeem these is scan your receipt with the Box Tops for Education app. All eligible Box Tops will then be added automatically to our school’s account!

Click here for more information on how to get started.

If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, make sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all traditional clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, you can “double dip” during the packaging transition by clipping traditional Box Tops AND scanning your receipt containing participating products.


RAVENSWORTH PTA DIRECTORY UPDATE
In May 2018, Governor Northam approved HB-1 Scholastic records, prohibiting access to directory information, which establishes that “no school shall disclose the address, phone number, or email address of a student”. As a result, the PTA will no longer be printing a student directory.
