Step 1: Affix your clipped box tops to the LEFT SIDE of the provided sheet. Be sure to write your name, grade, and teacher on the sheet. You can print out more sheets if needed. (Alternatively, you can still place your clipped Box Tops in a Ziploc bag labelled with your name, grade, and teacher.) If you are scanning your receipts with the Box Tops App – THANK YOU! You can write the date and amount earned from each scan on the RIGHT side of the provided sheet. If you are not scanning your receipts with the Box Tops App, it’s easy! Just download the app and sign up to support ROCKAWAY MEADOW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL; School ID: 133191. Take a picture of your receipt with the app and click submit!

Step 2: If you are not affixing your clipped Box Tops to the provided sheet, then count the number you have and write the amount on the Ziploc bag. This will determine which tier of prize you’ll have a chance to win. If you used the provided sheet or are scanning your receipts, then there is no need to count individual clippings! Bonus!

Step 3: Hand in the Box Tops bag or sheet(s) to your teacher before February 21!
