The remaining money will go to Wilson PTO, which supplies all of those cool extras for YOUR child’s school – like the items mentioned above. That means that every dime donated benefits the children and staff of Wilson Elementary!

We would love 100% participation from our Wilson families. Any amount is appreciated and anyone can donate: grandparents, friends, neighbors, co-workers. GO GET THOSE SPONSORS TODAY!

It’s Box Top submission time
Published: Mon, Feb 8, 2016, 10:42AM CST

Hey Wilson Rangers!
It’s Box Top submission time. It’s our last chance this school year to earn cash for our school! The Box Top drive is running from now until Friday, February 19, 2016.

Did you know that one little Box Top is worth 10 cents? That doesn’t sound like much but if you turn in a Box Top collection sheet with 25 Box Tops it is worth $2.50. Just imagine then if you and 9 of your classmates each turn in a collection sheet with 25 box tops on it you have just earned $25.00 for our school! Clipping those little box tops adds up fast and helps us pay for new items for our Wilson teachers or items needed for a PBL and even popcorn and other refreshments for fun events. Our goal for this school year is to raise $1000 and we have raised $470 so far.

Ask your teacher for a collection sheet and tape or glue your clipped Box Tops to it. We can’t use expired Box Tops so check the date on them to make sure they aren’t expired. Bring them to school even if you don’t have enough to fill a full sheet. Every Box Top counts!

Don’t forget to put your name and your grade on the collection sheet. The grade with the most submissions will get a popcorn party. Turn in all your Box Tops by Feb 19th Thanks for your help Rangers!

Great start Rangers, here are the totals so far:

Kinder is in the lead with125
1st has 25
2nd has 71
3rd has 33
4th has 49
5th has 19
